Dive into depths and seek out real life
Ask questions and listen to the desperate wife
Find in your judgment a place to glisten
Humans are praying for someone to listen.
In a world that’s connected by digits and light
Flickering screens give false life to the night
Propelled by freedom and programmed to greet
We are far from the fruit that souls need to eat.
Come to me now and hold out your hand
Let my skin feel yours and let feet feel the sand
Remove your devices from sad, orphaned hearts
Try and remember where life really starts.
No place for a photo op, no ‘selfie’ to boot
Come and live life without ‘likes’ as your loot
Treasure in darkness what God can make healed
Your life is more precious than ‘likes’ can reveal.
And so if you’re seeking an end to your marriage
Remember that Facebook cannot be your carriage
Blessings are found in honoring vows
Forgiveness is perfect for creating new nows.
