Just sharing a piece of me.

Here is something I wrote many years ago, and although the terms might be a little outdated, the concept, and feeling is still valid in todays world.

It's called "Real People"

The bit, the baud, the silicon chip.
Staring aimlessly at our screens.
Talking for hours, yet never uttering a word.
Is this what's become of society?

Cables, plastic, and screaches from the modem.
Endless streams of data, flowing over phone lines.
Across towns, States & Countries.
Showing each other only what we wish to share.

Real people, hiding behind a mask.
A mask of data sent from one computer to another.
Continuing the stream of text.
What to believe as fact, and what as fiction?

With the dawn of technology.
With the growth of knowledge.
And vast amounts of information.
I ask a simple question.

Where have all the real people gone?
