What part does social media play in your life?
Hey there, look at me!
In this world likes are the coin of the realm,
but is that any way to be?
What’s real? Do you have to remind yourself?
What’s real to you? Actual relationships, or your 2,053 “friends?”
What’s real? Is life really about your digital platform?
Don’t lose track of what’s genuine and what’s pretend.
Are your words on the net a means or an end?
Do you consider what it means to be a friend?
Are you content with superficial content?
It’s all worth considering before you hit send.

and going hungry, both of having abundance and
Lord in all my days
in my times of lean
and well fed
the times I look forward to
and yes those that I dread
build within me a structure
like a tree
long used to storms
let me not rely on happenstance
but rather look to You
Your steady hand
and guiding voice
will always hold me fast
