Distractions


Televisions blare,
pounding music dulls our brains,
aimless chatter,
books filled with empty words,
Internet chats and traps.

Parties filled with
life sacrificed and grilled,
booze flowing, laughter empty of joy,
sexual games without love.

Violent movies and video games,
media shows of world sludge,
the list goes on and on.

How many ways can we bury our fear
in an avalanche of distractions?

    Pat,
    You always find the words to express what my heart wants to express.
    Thank you!
