My slumber lasted long enough,
To witness an evolution taken place overnight.
People in disarray, clocks in a race.
Nothing is still, everything in motion.
Questions, all these questions!
No time to waste.
You stay behind, you lose!
Already accomplished, they ask me
if I had been there, seen that.
But I’m still catching up from last week.
Guess it’s no use anymore.
I’m falling so far behind.
I awaken to something new each day
With barely enough time to revel in it.
Before it melts into yesterday.
Things moving so fast I need to catch my breath.
My battery draining fast
Don’t see the exit sign anyway.
Trying to keep up with every update.
So many tasks I switch between
Just so I can keep you engaged?
If I’m slow I’ll get traded
In your eagerness to be upgraded.
Or I’d get replaced by a different version of me
I’m not a machine I’m a human. Let me be.
But, for a human I sound awfully like machinery
Looking back trying to figure it out.
When did I turn into modern technology?
