My fingers tap the screen,

a “window” appears where I stand, peering in

at worlds captured in statuses, frames and words.


likes and dislikes,

products to buy,

things to question and to understand

political drives,

scripture shared,

happy and sad faces,

love filled hearts,

angry words, disgust,

reminders of weakness and strength

remembrances of those who have died in vain,

those who are born, those who travel,

those who lay in darkness and those who shine.

Laughter, victory, compassion and joy  filled moments

mixed in with

hate, death and innocence lost.


My fingers tap the screen,

where the window closes when there’s too much to see

in a world captured in statuses, frames and words.
