Our Salvation

Without Apps

Email is so nifty
It gets there very quick
Messenger is just as fun
And WhatsApp is real slick
Instagram exposes you
Pinterest your likes
The phone is always handy
A letter finds a smile

All these different ways
To touch each other’s lives
Yet all of them are lacking
In portraying what’s inside
Today’s communication
Lacks time for face-to-face
To see their true expression
To hear a voice that’s raised

Let’s try to put aside
Our gadgets and our apps
To walk up to our neighbor
And share a heartfelt chat
Perhaps then love will win out
Over all the ugly ways
That have captured so much news
In too many of our days
