The 21st Century is very advanced technologically, but backwards spiritually and socially! I wrote this poem out of a very personal experience that I think many people can relate to:

Can You hear Me Now?
by    Z. B. M c C l u r e

You called me yesterday ?
I'm sorry.
I was home.
but my thoughts were
f a r   a w a y .

Did you get my call ?
No?  Don't apologize.
Sometimes life is
just that way.

Passing one another
no connection;
and when we do (connect):
Poor reception

So many ways to
get  in  touch
but I miss you oh, so  much!
And I know you miss me too.

Technology seems to have stunted out ability to communicate in real terms. It's all about the typed word these days. Our younger generations have no memory of, or any clue as to the value of, that personal touch ...and that's just plain sad!

So many times, you just want to say, "Stop tweeting, you twit!" So many ways to get in touch; but, so many distractions to keep you 'from' touching - texting, tweeting, facebooking, cell-phoning. Today's generation HIDES in their cell phones, becomes MORE introverted, less social, and doesn't even CARE to look up from their phones, to be civil, and civilized.

Right on. It seems like it's harder every year to make more meaningful connections in our lives. Technology does not necessarily help us in that regard.

Very true. I can't say it any better than Jerry.

I have to completely agree with your summation inside this bleak, but very true poem.

Nice poetic thoughts of peace, love and innocence. However, we in this world are advancing backwards. Morons are making a mockery of our civil decent society. But like an ostrich, decent people don't know what to do. We have our heads in the sand while terrorist slay our brothers and sisters out in the open. Pray for justice for all, Amen
