Running behind life,
Catching up breaths,
Aiming to make more and more,
Are we forgetting less is more?
Wandering between desks,
Staring at our screens,
Struggling with our dreams now bigger,
Are we missing on life’s little treasures?
Boasting of being connected,
Thousands of emails to check,
Hours spent texting and messaging,
I ask,Are we really talking?
Phones talk on dinner tables,
Mental maths has taken a toll,
Gadgets have replaced family values,
The question remains, Are we even caring?
Now eyes don’t meet in person,
Neither is laughter shared in real,
In pursuit of higher Intelligence
Are we ignoring the Human essence?
When humans remain no human,
Technology replaces emotions,
Grannies don’t tell stories any more,
Kids ask questions to “Alexa” more.
I know it all, thanks to Google,
The mind has forgotten to doodle,
Life’s become so dependent,
And we call ourselves independent.
In pursuit of higher IQ
