UNPLUG ME

I'm unplugged for now, im free.
  This virtual situation can be poisoning, truly.
I try not to let it capture me
  Its imagery, can be so damn pretty.

So if sometimes you dont see me
  Know that its just temporary.
I've unplugged every inch of me
  From the cell phone, net to HDTV

I do not want to get stuck in, a trance treaty
  With the entertainment, industry.
These subliminal messages are attacking me
  I just needed, a little time to breathe.

To break this systematic energy,
  Bring me back to reality & focus on whats 
Really important to me.  
 
All that glitters is enticing, indeed.
  But its perceived, to make one happy.
A devised plan, through the enemy.

These companys do not love you or me
  Its just a perception, of what they want 
You to believe.
  Electronic warfare control, is there gain
To achieve.  

Hold on to whats tangible, in truth.
  Life is to fragile.  Our mind is our armour,
If only we ,  choose to use.


So today I can say, im not mechanically free
  But im thankful, I took some time out
TO UNPLUG ME....

    Very Nice Cherie! Look at my "I Spit Fire" contest info and see you're interested; I think you'd be quite good.

    More temptations at every turn. I used to tell my wife when they have holographic strippers in the living room. Old guys will be dropping dead all over the place.It is a wild crazy ride when reality and fantacy are so inter active . Keep your head clear and keep on thinking free! Cherie. Michael

    Hi cherie, I totally agree with your views. I use the term 'unplugged' every weekend! Although I like taking some of the time to read the soup. There are so many inspirational people who give me glimpses of their reality. I really enjoyed this one !
