Do not Disturb

Technology an average person would have in today's society.

Got to have that newer model every year.

With pages of apps to fill a library.

Thousands of notifications from the latest updates.

Every second of everyday surfing the web for countless hours.

A part of your soul tethered to a piece of metal.

Useless when it has no power and worse without Wi-fi.

Taking our ability to socialize in public like humans.

Having a conversation not over a screen miles away.

Being caught in the riptide of social media.

Drama being started over the littlest thing.

It will ruin your life, so what's the next move?

Take a break from the other side of your social life.

Disconnect and nature is waiting on you.
