    A very lovely piece too - and one I completely relate to. I was on Facebook 3 or 4 years ago, but got sick of it after a few months - we seem now to be more obsessed with the people we aren't with than those we are......oh, and looking good. Facebook was a great idea that's got out of hand (in my opinion).
    And your right, pnq is a great place and what's lovely - as your poem states - it is poetry that unites us all here; we all have that, if nothing else, in common.
    All the best,

      Ben....youre so right..people are becoming obessessed with people thar they arent with people they are with! I have to admit that it was so for me.... it was like a taking control of my perso.n. I now feel a freer and happier not having to "check" my facebook constantly :-)

      This always was the best place to be! :-)

    Hi,
    I agree with your carefully chosen words. I stopped using Facebook too about 7 years ago after it polluted my life. Sharing time with like minded people feels right for me and you too.
    I am glad you decided to share your talent again.

    Take care,

    Michael

    Its these simple words which makes a poem relate-able and make the readers nod their head in agreement. Yes it is a place where we become a family for the love of writing...nice to read your works again Olwin!

    Nice work Dreamofolwin!
    Yes, Facebook is a waste of time, far better on here I think, and 'family' is what it is!
    Nicely penned, and so true!
