Poem: Our Human Addiction


Photo from SMT’s Travel Journal

Our Human Connection

Is my addiction.

We catch glimpses 

Of one another

Echoing each other

 Through this cyberspace.

With click, a like and a share

The dots connect in a flash

Knowing me is seeing yourself

Knowing you is seeing myself.

This human interaction

A lesson in Compassion

Beauty in Transcendence.

We live for that validation

From each proclamation

Our mutual adoration

Fuels our inspiration.

You see me

Between the lines

I know you

From all sides, no lies

I am because you are.

We affirm one another

We nurture each other

Sharing one more beautiful light

Before we say good night

Leaving nothing asunder.

May our human connection remain the main attraction of life.  






Being Afraid Is Human, But Staying Afraid Is A Choice.
