Just A Screen

Why is it we get so irritated with a display
How can it deliver such feeling and emotion
We sit in front of it and share so much with others
It becomes something to which we have almost devotion.

It can be that we use it for work each day
That isn’t unusual in this electronic age
We spend the time staring at numbers and words
Using it to fulfill our need to make a wage.

Then there are those that stare at a screen to relax
Maybe they play a game or compose a work of art
The time that is spent can take our mind off of life
Sharing with others something that of our self is a part.

For some this technology is a way to sit and escape
Not always a bad thing to have as we go through the day
It brings to our fingertips much that we would otherwise miss
But don’t let this distraction be the only reason we stay.
