The encouraging devotions have arrived in my inbox
A scroll of my feed, the casual and thoughtless likes I’ve given
Opening my WhatsApp and replying to messages
A quick browse in the world of tweets
The amount of pointless “reply to all” emails I’ve received
The road signs and songs on the radio that I’ve consumed.
The racing thoughts running to an unseen finish line
The clips I’ve watched and the kudos I have given.
Instructions, suggestions, tasks, to-do-lists
News updates, pop up adverts
All this info we receive on a daily basis
The weight of it all, is slowing suffocating us.
We’re lucky if our brain has even switched off…
By the next morning.
It begins again.
This slow death by information…
