Disconnection. - Poem by Syed Anwar Yarkhan Jilani

The youngsters having advanced games on mind
Divorce the world and put off everything behind.
Call to attend some incident makes them uneasy
Consider it a botheration as they are rather busy.

Wired interactions seldom have a human touch
A real friend has been replaced by a virtual hub.
Obsessed mind now identifies with the anti-hero
Fail to appreciate difference in fame and infamy.

In alienation the line of real and fiction is blurred,
For people who are delusional, lonely and suicidal,
Without a social interaction find real doors closed
Anything from films to music lyrics can be residual.

Posed with real challenges of pain, loss, heartbreak,
Insecurity or anger minds are ill equipped to break.
The real emotional buffer has over the time shrunk
Friends on the social media are imaginary and bunk.

High rate of divorces and joint family disintegration
With frequent marital strives are due to alienation.
Human connections cease to be of significance now
Gadgets are cutting into our life's social interaction.

Lost health, diet, education and even hugs or kisses
The virtual generate a bubble of so called excesses,
No institution around of an empathy or kindliness
Isolation results in disconnecting folks more or less.

The web is a dangerous place to live and be addicted
To go astray and to sooner or later get indoctrinated,
The scourge of alienation isolation and disconnection
Is more of a menace than both HIV and hypertension.
