To Delete the Programmed Brain

Awaking I find with a click of the eyes, Little rectangles all colors floating, Floating and waiting suspended in my brain, so I “Choose morning duties” – there’s an app for that, A rectangle lights up, “Feed the cat.” “Put on your shoes,” a link I click, “Go walking,” my eyes blink “, and I get my coat; “Arrow down to ‘music,” blink (an app for that) Scroll to “Vivaldi, Hum and be happy,” click. Internal am I as I jog by and by, I see you--the eyes click “Greetings,” “How are you,” How did I arrive in this awful tech state? Trying to know all and be bright as you? If I’m really smart, I’ll return to my heart, Blink “delete all” and be free, and be true.

Ah, it s such a beautiful written poem and you have explained everything really well, I really hope that life would have been so easy, that we would have a option that delete everything and we would have forgotten abot a particular thig or person ever existing in our life, but it s far too complicated, we have to live our whole life with good and bad memories, that s what life is

Hi Sunlite, this is a wonderful, fun write from your pen, telling how programmed we may have become. I have actually went back to basics in many things. Excellent work sunlite. This one goes into my faves. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs....Mike. XX
