Technology is Not Forever



By: Justice Marshall

Technology is not forever.
Our phones are attached to our hands,
Slaves to our computer screens,
Our hands no longer tools for work,
They are now controllers.

Technology is not forever.
Neither is your brain,
Now comparable to McDonalds’ fries
All because you had one last level

Technology is not forever,
But the warmth of touch is,
Now you grip your daughter’s hand loosely,
And wait for the brush of silence without her presence.

Technology is not forever,
It was made to improve us.
But who are you without it?
