can make or break the man.
They can plant their feet on solid ground,
or disturb the places where they stand.
Do we spend more time communicating,
or analyzing limited text?
Do we know what our neighbor is trying to say
if we don’t hear what is next?
We assume based on the limited
and things get in the way,
like the feelings we are conditioned with
and the emotions we keep at bay.
Text is the new talk
and we are slowly losing touch.
These few words we peck on devices —
how do they mean so much?
Sit down and get to know someone,
and bring an open mind.
Leave the devices of this world
stored away for another time.
