Life is an adventure
and we’re losing our way.
Our eyes are dimmed and
the digital images stream all day
We live computerized lives
and imagination withers away.
Society will live in digital hives
except for the free thinkers
trying another way.
Is nature still mysterious?
Do her sights, smells, and sounds
still delight and make us curious?
Imagination gives flights of mind--
Can truth be far behind?
