Virtual Reality

why is it........
That no man can walk alone 
without being burdened with sorrow.
That we measure our worth solely on 
the opinions of others........
why is it........... 
that an inanimate object can claimed
so much of our lives and replaced all 
need for any real sentiment.
Why is it ...........
That we've allowed the inter net to be 
our go to for comfort ,our refuge, our God.
What excuse have we chosen to
isolate ourselves from a world we fear to 
While it is true that this medium has
taken over our lives by giving  
a false illusion of being connected to one
another when the reality is that
we are all here for
the same reason: The need to fill a void.
that's what keeps us hooked;
Everyday requests come in come out but 
very few who gain access to you ever
speak or ever care to do so, 
at the end of the day we are just another 
annoying post waiting to be deleted ,
another face waiting to be blocked or erased. 
All the while someone who truly cares is waiting 
but ignored someone who truly cares, someone 
who truly matters someone we can see eye to eye
face to face the only real embrace.
