FACEBOOK Plight.

Updated on April 24, 2011

Deep into the night,
I stare at my screen.
13 new notifications;
My facebook page reads.

I begin to reply,
But my hand stops working.
I don't want to be social anymore,
I closed the page, sulking.

I think about the time,
When facebook was not the ultimate addiction.
But now the times have changed,
Now it's every being's conviction.

I myself have been the luckless victim,
Of this unique disease.
And now sitting, repenting,
I can't even feel the cool breeze.

All those times I wasted on this social network,
And all those unimportant status updates.
All the unwanted poking wars,
And the idiotic competition of having more mates.

All of it seems distant and long gone.
Any of it is not important anymore.
With the evolution of this great social network,
We have stopped being social anymore.

I decided; This is it.
I won't be the slave of this disease.
I don't want to repent,
And I want to feel the breeze.

I opened the settings and clicked Deactivate account.
It asked the reason why.
The hell with you man!!!
I don't want to specify.

On the final confirmation screen,
My hand actually faltered.
I thought about thinking twice,
No; this decision could not be altered.

I pressed Confirm, without another thought,
Thinking I will never see that page again.
The screen said; whenever you come back, login with the same account again,
No baby, that's not going to happen ever again.

I slept peacefully, feeling light hearted.
Thinking never to see that page again.
Woke up in the morning and switched on the computer,
And ended up with the sign;
WELCOME BACK TO FACEBOOK AGAIN.....

      This is brilliant!!! I must show this to a friend. And this part is so true;

      With the evolution of this great social network,

      We have stopped being social anymore.

      While being from separate countries you and I have little other choice. However, all of this texting instead of speaking, all of the emails and Twittter, so many methods of social networking for people who live in the same communities are, indeed, putting a decline in real socializing.

      My son texts me and we live about nine block from each other. He hates talking on the phone and works a full time and a part time job so I can see why and I'm happy he thinks of me, but I still have a hard time getting used to it.

      And I am just as guilty. I send e-cards to friends instead of mailing a real card, I comment on my 16 year old granddaughter's Face book, but we also speak on the phone for hours. Things are changing - there is no doubt!

      Very clever write!
