                                                                                           mirror, mirror on

                                                                                my facebook wall, who's

                                                                           the most popular, of us all ..

                                                                    the one with the most invisible

                                                              friends, the house, the car and the

                                                        latest trends. the grand vacation, the

                                                        perfect life,  the perfect husband, kids

                                                       or wife, the status updates throughout

                                                       the day, that cover work

                                                       and school and play, all

                                                      that I've thought or done

                                                       or said … from morning

                                   light, (I'm now in bed), but here's my latest pair of

                                  shoes, my latest cause, my latest news, the latest

                                  gadget that I've found, the rumours I must pass

                                  around, and this is what I ate for tea, and look

                                  my kitchen, don't you see my perfect life, it's

                                 me, me, me! O wake up people, life is brief!

                                                        go read a book, admire

                                                        a leaf … exchange your

                                                        selfies and your 'tweets'

                                                         for songbird melody, so

                                                        sweet, drink in a sunrise

                                                        smell a rose, savour the

                                                         earth beneath your toes,

                                                         or walk along an empty

                                                         beach, hold little hands

                                                         whilst still in reach and

                                                         feel the wind, embrace

                                                         the rain, that beats upon

                                                         your window pane, gaze

                                                         at the stars above your

                                                          head, your status soon

                                                          may read as 'DEAD'

 

 

Okay, today I had some time on my hands. Perhaps I should put it to better use.  Formatting messed up with lines between :(  Also a disclaimer … I do have a fb account and enjoy reading OC, RZIM and catching up with NZ friends on it, however it can be a time waster as the very nature of the beast, draws you in ...been there, done that. Yet most visits leave me empty and dismayed, not just because of the mind numbing, narcissistic aspect in general, but what professing 'Christians' are openly into. Facebook, should be approached with caution.
