Unplugged

I see you

holding

that fear.

You’re afraid

to log off

of every site

and every app,

because maybe,

you’ll miss out

on the modern things

of life,

and maybe you’ll have

to release

the steady noise

of headlines,

speculations,

and global worries,

but please,

do not live in shame.

You are not alone

if you refresh

your timeline

over and over

to find

yourself hungry

and overwhelmed.

And maybe this era

is just foolish

for priding itself

on the everywhere

of information

when not all of it

is useful.

Could being brave

mean doing

what is best

for you

to be

right now?

Could it mean

accepting

the gift of

unplugging and

missing out

for a time?
