what happened to us?
we no longer find comfort
in holding each others' hands
and even when we lay together under the blanket,
we keep warm by cuddling a stuffed animal.
we have deep conversations without looking deep into each others' eyes
our emotions are shallow and our concentration spans within a very short time because our faces are buried deep in our phones.
family time is no longer the time where father, mother, kids and every other member of the family gather around to eat dinner, play games, talk and laugh.
family time is now the moment where everyone sits in front of a television screen often times, in silence.
we get our pads and joysticks and play games with hearts and feelings.
because the world is a global village, we claim to be BFFs with strangers a thousand miles away and yet struggle with letting out a simple "hi" to the people around us.
we talk nonstop about giving to the needy and helping others up the ladder of success but when it is time to actually lend a helping hand, we place them in our pockets and walk away, pretending not to hear them cry out in pain.
what's the word again?
hypo... exactly, hypocrisy.
we spend time preaching what we do not practice that there is no empathy to practice all we have heard.
what really happened to us?
how did we get to this point?
i'm asking because i need answers.
who did this to us?
