With a click of a mouse
We can travel the world
Learn limitless things
We can make friendships abroad
Even have virtual flings

But the one thing we can't do is
Reverse the damage
It's caused in our society

Technology has become
A virtual calamity
Our "go to" for comfort
Our God

While trying to fill an inevitable void
We fill our momentary needs instead

So dependent we've become on technology
Oblivious to a very harsh reality
We give it all of our time while
The souls of our children bleed
We are devoid of any real substance
But obstinate to hear the truth
Technology will continue to advance
And so will our abuse of it
