Electronic Civilization and Its Discontents


Electronically  plugged in life
Connected with invisible wires
Millions of fake connections
While surfing for true one  

Happily connected and being together   
While unhappily not being together
Connected but isolated
Attached but feels helpless

Who said ; No man is an island
Electronically separated in tiny islands
Live in a plugged universe
Being alone together

Falling in love with an online avatar  
Facing each other mechanically
But hiding from each other
Walking towards an unknown destiny

Eradicating the human touch
Eliminating  human relationships
Establishing robotic empathy
Lost souls in a cyber world

Expecting more from technology
Expecting less from each other
Becoming more and more isolated
Anyway I Share, Therefore I Am

Dr Ruwan M Jayatunge
