The Real And The Unreal

Updated on September 10, 2014

What's Really Happening Here ?

Life is stranger than fiction

Most people are tuned into television

They live their life through the characters they see

Molded little by little

Influenced by their culture

Consumed by the internet

Drifting in and out of consciousness

Their own feelings hidden from their own mind

Are you following my lead ?

Where are past haunts us in the future

We strive for a clean break

Showing complete confidence in our circle of madness

Using music for a diversion

We escape to an uncharted world

Turning to food to subdue our passions

Few can resist to flex their muscles when push comes to shove

Only when you think you have control you know you don't

Eating old marshmallows that were pushed way in back of the kitchen cabinet

Realizing that they can last forever

Turning to our greatest passion

Finding connections we have never seen before

Opening up our mind where the unlimited is welcome

Touching upon the mysteries that have baffled past generations

Only to realize some things are better off left alone

Responding to our pets with all the love and affection

Waiting as they share a bond that is so strong

If only we could have that same connection with all people

How would this world be different ?

Instead of following the almighty dollar

We could find who we are from within

      Michael-Milec I find spending quiet time just listening to nature gives me contentl feelings as well as a very open and peaceful view. I think so may people hurry their thoughts and are too busy to give the important attention where needed. Thank you for your important overview of people and how they think. So many things in this world to see and do. Most of us never even scratch the surface during our lifetime. I love the way we can explore and enjoy all the pleasures through writing and experience the feeling and more. May your good thoughts be shared by all.

      Hi DREAM ON.

      Influence and a pressure from outside, to invade a person's privacy has ben always active. A battle for mind, to control spirit-man goes on since the cherubim prevented the way back into the Garden of Eden. Integrity of a man wasn't taken away though ,- and we are making choices. Are we willing to stay strong and uninfluenced, take time and think for ourselves?- that would make the difference of being content or never satisfied. …" "some things are better off let alone…" Particularly. Life's becoming more complicated where giving up on the Creator's principles.Those of us who were led by example, have it ' easier ' by applying proven moral principle " "godliness with contentment is a great gain. '" Works for me some 3/4 of Century.

      Voted up and useful.

      Good night.

      Great message. Ever in financial problems I stopped trying to get a hold of that elusive dollar or in my case Euro a long time ago. I do the very best I can and we get by.

      DDE The advances in technology are so great and they never stop. I think of my childhood how simple and different. I am glad I have a chance to enjoy both worlds. annart Person to person There is nothing like it. The technology speeds everything up unfortunately at a price. People forget how to socialize and enjoying the peace and quiet. Not always on the go, go ,go. Thank you both for reading and commenting. Have a wonderful night.

      Oh yes! 'Find out who we are from within' - amen to that. Be outward, look at people, interact with them, that is so much better than living vicariously through tele, internet etc.

      Great poem, great subject, well executed.

      Modern technology is not every ones best option some wish it never happened and others just enjoy the options. I enjoy the use of modern technology and your message is greatly mentioned.

      jodah I thought technology would bring so many people together in so many different ways. I can't believe it has made people more isolated and ignoring one another. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

      Hi Dream On, there is a good message in these words. If only people could respond to one another as they do with their pets....unconditionally...the world would be a better place. Instead we are moving away from face to face interaction.
