the lens of media

April 10, 2017 life

It is not the news
of what actually happens
which weighs us down.

It is the endless commentary,
reactions and opinions,
ad infinitum,
which overwhelm us,
feeding our fear,
our anger and despair.

In the light of reason,
we can manage in this world.

In the lens of media,
we are near to burning up
in its intensity.
