INTERNET

I can maintain connections worldwide

but fail to do so among persons,

staying at an arm distance.

I’m internet- the most modern technology-

I’ve placed the world one step forward

but human connections have become hollow

and for this I feel sorry.

Yes, it's such a shame that we have to maintain distance, even from our loved ones, outside our own house. I think it's important, of course, but it's sad. Humans need contact.

You've voiced a common problem and the contrast between the two connections is wide! Let's hope it's coming to an end (though there is much work to do yet).
