Abandoned ©toki88

Out of place and out of time.
Underappreciated among the crowd,
that which once was treasured
has now become a part of the past.
And they have long gone
and left her behind,
unconsciously leaving her out of everything
while she remains standing still.
Looking at the people she holds so dear
the footsteps and distance keeping them apart
and the emptiness, with the feeling of abandonment.

poem written by me © Christa Uymatiao 2007,

Have you ever wondered what it felt like to be left alone, or left behind? Such things happen a lot in our present day society. With the availability of new technology, the discovery of new things, and the modernization of our world, more and more of us find ourselves left behind by the passing time. Sudden changes in society, brought about by many factors are some of the causes for such feelings. Instead of the world bringing us closer together, the rate at which everything seemingly “improves” is too fast for everyone to flow along with.

At first, the improvement in different sectors of society due to technology seems to help. Many problems are solved, and many new things are discovered thanks to modernization. But at the same time, those who chose not to accept, or those who fail to understand this modernization, are left behind by the times, forced to struggle in a society that no longer accepts the old and the traditional. Items such as cellphones, which were once the pride of communication, may sometimes serve helpful to those who wish to communicate with one another. But at the same time, it also poses a problem. The increase in so many types of cellphones nowadays leads people to realize that they no longer know which is more helpful to them, and rather turn to what seems nice instead of what is truly beneficial.

Modern Technology may have brought many people closer together, but in the same sense, it has also made known the large and still increasing gap between traditional and modern society.

The Doll(dalera)

What lies behind the mask of a doll, kept sheltered and propped against the shelf wall. Beautiful and untouched for all to see, she comes unmasked in beautiful glory.
