We all live in a virtual generation.
A generation of children
growing up on a screen.
Not looking where they are going
eyes down, ears covered
missing the world around.
A generation with the
world at their fingertips
limitless with the tap of a button.
Instant contact with friends
and instant answers to their questions,
they can do anything- and they know it.
This is a generation that
knows the world they are in
and one that leaves others far behind.
And so those, that misjudge and
criticise and push them away.
The virtual generation live in a bubble
without the screen would they live just the same?
They make virtual friendships that are lies and fake
and that the virtual generation should stop.
The virtual generation does have its downfalls
They live for the destination, not the journey there
They forget the beauty in the setting sun and the snow
and forget to talk face to face, not by phone.
The virtual generation can learn and discover
more than they would ever think
They travel the world without leaving their chair-
and then go there after seeing the picture.
They see the beauty in memoires and pictures
that they can save and remember again.
And they meet others, everywhere, all over the world
and make true friends- with the start of a screen.
We live in a virtual generation
And yes, not everything is good.
But they are learning their place in the world-
a world that was racing before they were born.
