Four days without a phone,
And I felt like a newborn.
I looked around and saw the light,
And could’ve sworn it wasn’t as bright.
Looking around you was a thing of the past,
Now it’s a concept—a series of dreams that never really last.
I realised we’ve stopped enjoying our days,
Stopped looking for our craze.
I went to the ocean and saw the light,
And for once, I let go of the social fright.
I went to the beach and saw the stars,
And they looked like tiny and little lit jars.
I went to a place where I found solace,
A time where our phones didn’t take a toll on us.
In a night far away and hushed,
The surroundings pressed—mushed.
Everything stood still and muted,
And darkness spread; deep-rooted.
Fear wasn’t what plagued me,
It was fun that did; and for once I felt free.
I swam in a pool and raced the waves,
And the claws slipped away— freed us, the slaves.
So hop along and let go,
For one day or even two.
Search for that peace of mind,
And leave all that made you blind.
Howdy my most beloved readers!
I’m sorry for being absent for a while now; but I went to a resort for a couple of days and had no internet connection there. Actually, I more-or-less got rid of my phone during those few days, and, truth be told, I felt rather liberated. Today’s little piece is about the feelings I felt there and the things I saw, and the peace I actually felt was beyond what words would do justice to; but it was all quite exhilarating. What I mean to say is: freeing ourselves of our electronic cages is a right we ought to hold on to; so do give yourselves a break– it’s truly wonderful. (Also, did you see that picture?
