The Disconnected (A Christian Poem)

 

The Disconnected

 

We’re so eager to know what’s going on with others
 
I’m not talking about kids, but fathers and mothers
 
 
First thing when our eyes open for the day
 
The phone makes it to our hand some way
 
 
Checking and scrolling to see what’s new
 
But really what’s happening is its becoming part of you
 
 
Instead of seeking the Kingdom of God that sets us free
 
People are seeking the Kingdom of “me”
 
 
They’re letting their minds be a slave to the machine
 
I’m being truthfully, not trying to be mean
 
 
I understand people struggle with being depressed
 
But I think we should for starters try looking at our phones less
 
 
Most people have hundreds of friends they see on Facebook
 
That means someone is on vacation every time that you look
 
 
We should experience life the way it was designed to be
 
Where people interact with each other, you know.. .you and me
 
 
If we truly want to live a connected life
 
Where kids know their parents and husbands know their wife
 
 
We have to make a choice to change what we do
 
It starts with me… and it starts with you
 
 
Let’s seek first the Kingdom of God everyday
 
Let’s put the cell phones away
 
 
Before time with our kids run out
 
Otherwise when they’re grown we’ll see what this is all about
 
 
Generations of people looking at screens
 
Are you seeing yet what I mean?
 
 
Go out to eat and watch the people around you
 
People staring down, but what do we do?
 
 
We be the change we want to see
 
It starts with you… and it starts with me
