Progress vs. Humanity

You read this now
Perhaps seeking glimpses of humanity
Absorbed through curved black lines on white screen

Ever deeper and more meaningful
the status updates
the likes and the pokes
The spiraling social media
replaces our interactions
Our thought patterns, even
Ever think in 3rd person?

where are Adam and Eve
Where is our garden?
smelling, feeling, tasting

To touch the earth
and others
engulfed by senses
Ruled by emotion
And physical need

As time elapsed
Progress was made
In technology
Matched by an equal decline
In humanity
And mindfulness
