I Ponder

Isn’t amazing

that we can meet and

know the deepest thoughts

and fears

and loves

and beauty

of someone across the world

without ever knowing their true name

their job

or even what they look like

Their facial features

become the appearance of their page

Their voice

becomes the words and writer’s style

The judgement and stereotypes

melt away

and turn into reading between the lines

to truly judge if they are worthy

of clicking the follow button

I ask

I wonder

I ponder

Which is better?

Face to face

we not might give them the time of day

but

looking at a screen

we give them our deepest selves

but hide what everyone sees.
