Plugged In?

by louis gander  
5/24/2011 / Christian Living


Are we a mere computer,
or have we skin and souls?
Have we hearts that often break -
with sometime mixed-up goals?

This world has seen some changes,
and many, not so good.
We often think of only 'self'
instead of what we should.

Maybe fault is not our own -
as when we are abused.
Eden's Garden, this is not -
when innocent are 'used'.

Can people be deleted?
Do friends no longer stay?
Are people simply 'products' that,
some use - then throw away?

We plug in our computers.
and we are 'plugged in' too -
but sometimes we will sit alone -
when real friends are few.

Computers do not have a heart,
and neither have they pain -
but people hurt from inside-out -
and often times complain.

Brand new software will not work,
in minds that still compute.
When control-alt-delete won't work,
we simply don't reboot.

When computers go awry -
we wipe the hard-drive clean -
but people cannot soon forget,
and must on shoulders lean.

Water kills computers,
and they don't cry in tears -
but people have the right to weep -
to God who always hears.

FOR GOD knows every truth there is,
and pain He will erase -
if we will only seek His truth,
and troubles squarely face.

We either love this life we have,
on pathways we have trod -
or we can get unplugged from earth,
and get 'plugged in' to God!
