The Paradox of our Time

Post by Unknownsu » Thu Feb 10, 2005 7:35 pm

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers.
We have wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less.
We buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses, but smaller families.
We have more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less sense.
We have more knowledge, but less judgment.
We have more experts, but more problems.
We have more medicine, but less wellness.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We have learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We have cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We have split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We have higher incomes, but lower morals.
We have more leisure, but less fun.
We have more kinds of food, but less nutrition
We have added years to life; not life to our years.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We NEED to MAKE a DIFFERENCE or We'll just be the SAME

Hey honey,
Did you write that poem all by yourself? If so... You did a great job! I really liked it. Your brain did work this time, huh?
