Millennium two point O

Indifference because of what and why? Pointing straight fingers with bent integrity. Voices so loud but shy, The day is as bright as a fogged-up mirror reflecting shadows of puppets with cut strings. Each motion of despair drifting away on a sea of sand as motivation quivers and sighs – oh where is my phone....! Endless hours have silently spoken, the sky of day broken with effortless devotion. Shards of glass shattered through stupidity, now a machine is designing a machine to pick up the pieces. The stars fill the dark black open night with a closed mind and it's still damp and cold as if to be knee deep in mud with technology that is so fast but it’s like humans are stuck. A gust of warm wind with a slight glimpse of hope It is your turn now, don’t drag your feet and mope. 07/22/2021 Word Play Poems with Play-on-Words raison d'etre -- Poetry Contest Free verse poetry form only.
