In between the media, gadgets and social
anxiety, I have feelings too. They
tell me to stop and listen to something
other than YOLO and FOMO. As I browse
through feeds, the limbic
part of me raises the bar a little
higher than before, while the frontal
part of me swings
between dissatisfaction and hope.
I look at you
from the peripheral field of my mind. I know
you won’t stop. Craving
more is what we were made
to become. Somewhere in our heads,
we lost our hearts.
