The Preciousness of (Y.O.U.)

There is a
(Preciousness)
in the world and all that which is precious–
is you
is Me
is–We.

We are all (that) valuable…
and we are more than the
videos(we)take too much-time-out-of-our-precious-lives
to watch
(and not)
participate.
Because
(we are so busy
doc-u-menting)
the very lives we should be…
(living)
We are more than the perfectly posed
Selfie’s. And no matter how adorable we need to feel
(these self-images)
are not images of our
(True Self)
These digitized imitations
(Limitations)
do-not-de-fine
Us
or who we truly are.
And there are so many
(reels)to choose from!
These snip-its and cleverly calculated “filters”
cannot and do not convey who we are
(authentically) to
(others)
viewing
(without)
en-gaging.
Unlike the (precious) sun
(it’s-just-A-screen.
There is no real warmth).
It’s-just-A-background-light)
Bright and blinding.
(No real comfort)
We cannot see,
up, down and all-around.
And aren’t we all too isolated anyway?
Technologically close
Tangibly at bay
That Screen–shields us
from ourselves.
(From others too.)
Instead of turning the camera on ourselves,
why not reach out to another fellow human and have them
do the clicking-this-one-time!
They cannot be far away and if they are?
Get outside and find someone to relate to
and
(hug-them).
Ask them to turn the camera on
you 😉
break free from
The Screen
Invite another into
your
(real world)
you never know–
you might just make a
(real friend)
