Embracing The Inevitable

An email notice from a new acquaintance
But he is on the other side of the world.
That’s not where he’s from, but
I managed to meet him through a relative.The instant power we have
At the very tip of our hands.
From the brain we were born with
To the body we currently occupy.

It’s not about some strange amazement
With the wonders of technology.
Rather a simple realization of
The tools that are readily available to us.

Everyday we do stuff, wondering if we can be faster,
More efficient, and better.
Many things can’t be fixed yet – as their time will come.
But with a little help many things can be changed instantly,

Thanks to the accessibility of communication.
As people have learned to use it,
Many have learned to abuse it;
Found ways to hurt other people with it.

Was this all a mistake? Was this thing really needed?
Just like everything else, I guess,
Embrace the inevitable,
And deal with the criminals justly.

As we take on more and more, and
Continue to make excuses for ourselves,
We strive to make life easier, more efficient;
We strive to be better.

Through these tools we have been given access to,
We allow our lives to be ruled by powerful pieces of plastic and metal.
And though we deny the rule it has over our time,
We push forward, blind to what the future may hold.
