Save Our Children From Technology - Poem by Lyn Paul

Save Our Children
From Technology
They are totally addicted
To Technology
It appears to be

Just so young
A child is handed
A phone
To keep it amused
By Technology

Then it begins
A laptop for school
An ipad for school
Is the teacher teaching?
Or theTechnology?

The beeps
The dings
Another message sent

Nothing is completed
Stuff just hidden away
Having to be reminded
Again, Another day

A book
Simply just living
All stolen
By Technology

Can it get better
Or will it get worse
Is it really a curse

We all love it
Cannot live without it
But, what is...
Doing to Society?

    A very thought provoking poem. Technology is great but young children are exposed to it too soon. Even schools are changing their teaching methods. Parents needs to be mindful and vigilant more than ever. (Report) Reply

    Really nice poem, I think we've become to dependent on technology now and are losing far too many important skills, I know a lot of young people who just don't have any real practical skills. (Report) Reply

    A great write Lyn. In fact a thought provoking poem. Really it make us think is Technology a boon or curse. There is not even a single day, when children are away from internet. I agree it gives them good exposure, but its curse too as children may tempt to misuse it. Beautiful presentation. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    Couldn't agree more. In fact, wrote Patient Zero One, on the same theme. (Report) Reply

    But what is technology doing to society......
    Any parent or grand parent with a non-mechanical brain has to be thinking about this great final line! ! !
    Where are our children going with their nose, eyes and brain stuck to portable screens. Will they ever be able to be weaned and lead a normal human life. These questions are marvelously presented in Lyn's present work. I hope she has some answers because I don't but it is very worrisome.
    Important and good work.

    A very interesting poem indeed. Technology has nowadays got so interwoven into our lives, that it is now too difficult to extradite it. Yet a life without technology would be so simple and pure. Another important facts is that the all pervasive technology has made our children prematurely mature! (Report) Reply

    Is technology a boon or a curse to our children.....? This is a serious question worth pondering over! Of course it is a boon and we cannot do away with computers or lap tops and mobile phones! But when Technology becomes an obsession, it becomes a curse! Our children are sadly alienated from the real world and its problems. They live in a virtual world morbidly estranged from their fellow beings! A great write Lyn! (Report) Reply

    The title would catch my attention anyday. Tech has disadvantages indeed esp the cellphone radiation is cancer causing esp in young kids. Tech is always replacing the human touch and presence, machinizing evryting, roboticizing humans which is harmful.
    So yor poem is a hardhitting masterpiece, one of your best tour de forces! Tc.

    So true, technology is a curse for children as they miss out on reading books, playing games with their friends and using their imagination, a wonderful write with a powerful message! (Report) Reply
