329 – Shutdown sequence

It’s never easy.

A clean path,
An uneventful trip,
A quiet, easy ride.
High hopes,
Never met by reality.

It’s never easy.

So many voices,
Way too much information,
So much noise,
Such a garbled signal,
So little substance.

It’s never easy.

Senses overloaded
By an avalanche of endorphins,
Riding on a fickle wave
Of momentary likes
And viral shares.

It’s never easy.

Finding the will
To disengage the hook.
Turn off
The virtual
Siren song.

It’s never easy.

Until suddenly
It is.

Until you say
–No more.
