What Once Was

I miss the development of "self" that the older generation had a chance to discover
I miss the simplicity of looking up and noticing what's in front of you
I miss the smiles and nods you give strangers in a public place just because you're aware that you're sharing a space
I miss the pause to admire the wonders of nature when you find yourself in a beautiful surrounding and you see something exciting
I miss the shrills of kids running around the neighborhood behind a ball
I miss when people had time to explore their talents as they try to accomplish creating something with their hands
I miss when enhancement to beauty were beautiful hairstyles, powder, eyeliner, and lipstick
I miss people used technology to make tasks manageable

Technology is living
Everything seems to become obsolete in a blink of an eye
People are in a trance. They are losing their real identity
People are always looking down
People aren't acknowledging each other anymore
Nature around us lose their real beauty as they're now snapped and filtered
Kids are indoors with bulging bodies and eyeballs glued to screens
There are short-cuts now for everything. Real talent is shoved to the corner
Beauty is now defined as an unrealistic and unnecessary standard that creates an artificial person and the masking of what once was
Technology doesn't assist anymore, it lives.
But what can we do?
