Strangers yet Friends

Strangers yet Friends

We make so many friends through social networking sites across the globe, all thanks to the internet. Come to think of it do we really know them well?

This is a poem about such wonderful friends beyond boundaries between countries across the globe.

Through the internet

I know you

I know not how you look

Nor do I show you

My true self as I truly am

It is just an icon that represents me

Strangers yet friends we are and will be

Through intricate network of cables

We chat and communicate

On the internet coffee table

We relive our tales

We exchange greetings

Send wishes, warmth and love

We talk for real

Networking somehow

I cannot see you

You cannot see me

Unless we are on live chat

In front of a camera

You and me

Mostly somehow

We never are

But still we are true friends

We all can take a bow!

In the virtual world of reality

I don’t know you

You don’t know me

I know about you from what you write

I develop an image of you in my mind

And you become my true friend real time

I truly care for you and you truly care for me

We are strangers yet friends

On the Social Network

This is how things nowadays work
