Sweeter Than Honey

Like a robot I have followed,

Re-posted and commented,

Staring at my screen,

Like I’ve become demented.

sweeter than honey

I’ve sprinted with the crowd,

Brain-washed and devout.

Hooked to the online world,

As if I cannot live without.

sweeter than honey

Now I’m sick of Facebook,

All those phony posts.

Sick of silly quizzes,

All those brags and boasts.

sweeter than honey

Now I’m sick of Pinterest.

How much pinning does one need?

And if you pin something,

Is it ever on the feed?

sweeter than honey

I am sick of LinkedIn,

Trying to look clever.

Do you ever get head-hunted…

For the skills you listed? Never!

sweeter than honey

Sick of Instagram selfies,

Bunny ears, kitten noses,

Bored people who spend time,

Snapping sultry poses.

sweeter than honey

Sick of Twitter-ing people,

With nothing much to say.

Does it add any quality

To my God-given day?

sweeter than honey

Too many opinions

I don’t want to hear,

Comments filling my head,

Each time I go near.

sweeter than honey

I’m sick of pressing ‘SEND’

Things have to get better.

I’m going back to the art

Of taking time to write a letter.

 

sweeter than honey

I’m going back to the art,

Of following God’s leading,

Goodbye social-media,

It’s the bible I am reading.

Beat Depression

“The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring and refreshing the soul.

The statues of the Lord are reliable and trustworthy, making wise the simple.

The precepts of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart.

The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever.

“The judgements of the Lord are true, they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes than much fine gold – sweeter also than honey.” (Psalm 19:9-10)

  1. Excellent post! I couldn’t agree with you more on the Facebook realm of things. If I see one more picture of my friend share another of what always looks like the same photo of her & boyfriend, I would puke. One of the main reasons for not fb’g in the first place.
    True… Need to be more spiritual, and enjoy what has been provided us.
