Sleepy Little Village – A Poem About Modern Society Issues and the Negative Effects of Technology
Sleepy little village, existing in the past, outside of modern times, did you have more comfort than among the abundance of modern life? Sleepy little village, where all work was done by the hands, were you more in tune with life's purpose? Were you closer to living out the Master's plan? Sleepy little village, slave to weather and Mother Nature's time, did harmony and your dependence keep you rested? Did you know how to slow the wheels of the mind? Sleepy little village, full of few possessions - poor, just getting by, did you know more joy and happiness than an age where refusals are met with entitled replies? Sleepy little village, where townsfolk talk as neighbors and kin, were you more enlightened on how to love and comfort? Were you more educated than us on the meaning of "friend"? Sleepy little village, simple - without convenience and modern charm, look at all our wonderful advances... Has technology eased our burdens or added more to drag along? -Poem Written by Justin Farley

Hello, everyone! I have recently published my first chapbook of Christian poems titled “A Voice in the Wilderness – A Chapbook of Poems about God”. This has been developed and polished over the past six months or so. I am happy with the final product and hope you find encouragement in the poems but also a validation that the spiritual life is not all sunshine and rainbows. We all struggle. We all have periods of questions and/or doubt. But it is the yearning that keeps us coming back for more and allows us to experience joy.
You can purchase either on Amazon or on my own bookstore (it is cheaper and has free shipping on my store) and is available on the Kindle and in paperback.
