Disconnect to connect

So here it comes only two words.
'SOCIAL MEDIA' with no third.
This thing which can be a waste of time.
I know its use is not a crime.
But sometimes we really need a break.
As creepy as it sounds or how much fake.
Truth is, LIVING does not lie in a screen.
Disconnect & Have Fun. You will know what I mean.
It is not logic for such a generation.
That without this thing we feel the isolation.
When texting replaced the phone-calls.
YES! Things that matter are these small.
When photos were taken to be a memory, REMEMBER?
Not selfies for instagram with every single member.
Outings were supposed to be for talks & gather.
Not holding ur mobile which people now rather!
Twitter & Facebook status to write your feelings.
As if they were the answer to your healing.
Life is short to waste it all ONLINE.
Although u can laugh hard watching a vine.
But put in mind to take some OFF.
And it wouldn't really be any tough.

In simple words I discovered how impact social media is getting over our generation, and that we used to spend more time together in the past but thanks to social media we now barely gather or talk like before!

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
