Hashim Perez – I Knew we were in Trouble when

70

This is one of the winning entries in our November 2018 writing competition.

I knew we were in trouble when we couldn’t distinguish between real and fake

The day, night and weekend are all the same

Nobody has an identity but everyone wants a name

I knew we were in trouble when we lost track of time but wanted to make every moment count

Putting the focus on stories yet losing focus of History

Leave a legacy before you are history

I knew we were in trouble when we forgot how to be humans

Some care less and some are careless

Secure a real connection and forget finding wireless
