Shopping malls, screens high tech,
What did we lose?
The sincerity.

The journalists,
Chinese lanterns to light a country,
Our hearts run away.

Great spirits too much have to make,
Only the small spirits
Stubble the ship.

In the space, there are no frictions,
It is what saves the solar system,
It is what saves the earth,
We cannot say it so much for the thought propelled at top speed.

Parisian stroll,
A beautiful oxymoron,
Too many looks.

Ah, I have to agree with these words . . . "Shopping malls, screens high tech, / What did we lose? / The sincerity."

Unfortunately out frantic speed off accomplishments has smothered our inner soul, making it near an impossibility to each out to others . . . These days it seems that we only reach out for the keyboard. Some day this trend is going to turn and bite us severely! Thank you for this write in depth.

thanks Jerry, what you write is so true, technology is not a paradise, we human have to manage more and more contradictory emotions, i think sincerity fades away for other thoughts more practical and selfish,

have a good day
