The Human Equation

Updated on June 20, 2017


The human touch does mean so much

As in time and space, we all move along

Cyber spectrums dominate, rule as such

Valuing every move to be right or wrong


Just as being human our thoughts prevail

No matter the cost, whether we win or fail

The metallic hand moves, directs all's time

Fake motions enhanced as in a pantomime



The most appropriate equation we may see

Is a personalized view of both you and me

As a common denominator bridges the gap

Avoiding the computer world and of its trap


The cyborg's jaws clamp shut, teeth do clatter

Comprehending of all humanity as the matter

Realizing his own fate, a scrap heap matinee

While lights flicker out no more game to play



Once productive years are no longer in place

Then put aboard a rocket ship sent into space

Why risk a human life when we don't need to

Saving all of us we can, true lives to embrace


Electronics, cyber world, a welcomed addition

Never should replace humanity, as its intention

Each decision is made and every result in mind

Directly an actualization of the most human kind

      These days there is too much emphasis on cyberspace and technology, seeming to forget about the human factor. There has to be a turning point. Blessings for your support my friend. whonu

      Yes, in this day and age, we can still make it a choice to keep up with actual human interaction. Nothing can replace this. It still seems very strange to me that virtual worlds exist where people can live fake lives online. Seems to be something terribly wrong with that.

      Thanks for this eye-opener!

      Your poem made me scrammble for a hug, too.

      As American activist and philanthropist , Lynne Twist, says, the day love overides the need for power, all will come good.

      Wise words, whonu. Why can't all decisions made have the major focus of preserving life? No one should be risked or sacrificed for any endeavour if it can be avoided.
