Technology's Whore The crickets have resumed their late-night lullabies-- such sweet serenades to my ears. They echo across early spring skies, and I've begun to realize how much I've missed solitude's serendipitous surprises, revealed when distractions are cleared. In their melodious music I find more meaning than in the endless stream of digital chatter. We've all been cajoled into lowering our eyes to life, hypnotized by sparkling screens, willingly wearing shackles of dopamine, and hailing technology our master. But paradoxically, the Internet's constant stream of content has not enriched our lives or given humanity a much needed drink. It has only washed away our ability to think, eroded our foundation, and its current has carried away the essence that existed at humanity's core. So from now on I'm content to listen to the concerts of crickets. I choose real, tangible, rich, and meaningful; I'm through with being technology's whore. Justin Farley
My current collections of poetry, all available on Amazon, all written by me, Justin Farley. A Voice in the Wilderness is a chapbook of Christian Poetry, written about the joys, doubts, struggles, and sorrows of the Christian life. Nature’s Bounty is a collection of nature poetry celebrating my love for the outdoors. And Thorns of Love is the first book of three in a series of poems about love, this one being sad, breakup poems.
I write to reach the hearts of the searching, the suffering, the still fighting. I write to soothe my soul and hopefully to soothe yours too. I write to celebrate and attempt to put words to the beauty of life. Here are my published books on Amazon. More to come. A huge, humble thank you to anyone who supports my work.
