We No Longer Know Who We Are

Dark clouds descend upon the unsuspecting minds
the glare of the computer screen is the only light
paying obeisance to the words of faceless people
attaching to them, hungry for a savior

Who we are no longer matters,
we have become slaves of alternate reality
any voice that calls louder becomes our master
while the ones in our heads fade into nothing

Blindly we go on with our lives,
trapped in a nightmare of our own doing
puppet heads on positions of power
who to blame but us, the nation?

For, sadly, we no longer know who we are,
consumed by the thoughts of the hungry masses,
soulless we have become, indifferent to each other’s plight
silent and cold, our true voices no longer heard.
