I download crazy all my days
My nights spent sifting through the maze
Download free
Or pay a hefty fee
Absorb it all or lightly graze

The glut of info stokes the craze
The price I pay my sanity
A heavy price that worries me
As I download crazy all my days

Download music, songs of praise
Download stuff for work and play
A vast virtual reality
I pick today from the panoply
What best suits my current phase
Crazy downloads fill my days

I upload with a bit more care
Since that puts my name out there
Carefully vet my family news
Consider the impact of my views
Pay attention as to just where

And what I feel free to share
Is it right, is it true
Is there any eternal value
Uploading with a bit more care

I could blithely say buyer beware
But there is responsibility to bear
My creations reflect just who
I am and what I do
Sending messages very clear
Uploaded with abundant care

Oh, I like this one a lot. I really like the images you paint and the rich words you use to to paint them.
For a bit of red ink: I think the first three stanzas feel a little disconnected from the last three. Is there a way you can tie the ending back to the beginning?
Great job! I really like the creativity you put into this!

I really like this. Poetry isn't my favorite genre, but every once in a while I come across a piece that really speaks to me. You did that with this unique perspective on the topic.

This was really good! I was absorbed in the words and meaning from the beginning to the end of this great entry. Thanks. God Bless~
