What Would "We" Change



If I could change the world


We would live in the moment.


Many say this is the age of technology


Society filled with mindless bodies


Eyes touch screens rather than the eyes of friends


Only focusing on megapixels and gigabytes.


Slides and swings in once crowded playgrounds now are only touched by the wind.


Staying inside is the new norm


Texting has replaced playing,


Online chats interrupt games of kickball in the backyard.


Smartphones at the dinner table have changed us.


We need to stop to smell the roses,


See the sun,


Feel the breeze,


And appreciate those around us.


Looking up from our screens could change the world.
