    "Look Up" by Gary Turk

    I have 422 friends yet I am lonely
    I speak to all of them everyday yet none of them really know me
    The problem I have sits in the space in-between
    Looking into their eyes or at a name on a screen

    I took a step back and opened my eyes
    I looked round and realised
    This media we call social is anything but
    when we open our computers and it’s our doors we shut

    All this technology we have it’s just an illusion
    Community, companionship, a sense of inclusion
    When you step away from this device of delusion
    You awaken to see a world of confusion

    A world where we’re slaves to the technology we mastered
    Where information gets sold by some rich, greedy bastard
    A world of self-interest, self-image, self-promotion
    Where we all share our best bits but leave out the emotion

    We’re at our most happy with an experience we share
    But is it the same if no one is there?
    Be there for your friends and they’ll be there too
    But no one will be if a group message will do

    We edit and exaggerate, crave adulation
    We pretend not to notice the social isolation
    We put our words into order till our lives are glistening
    We don’t even know if anyone is listening

    Being alone isn’t the problem let me just emphasise
    If you read a book, paint a picture, or do some exercise
    You’re being productive and present not reserved and reclused
    You’re being awake and attentive and putting your time to good use

    So when you’re in public and you start to feel alone
    Put your hands behind your head, step away from the phone
    You don’t need to stare at your menu or at your contact list
    Just talk to one another, learn to co-exist

    I can’t stand to hear the silence of a busy commuter train
    When no one wants to talk for the fear of looking insane
    We’re becoming unsocial, it no longer satisfies
    To engage with one another and look into someone’s eyes.

    We’re surrounded by children who since they were born
    Have watched us living like robots and think it’s the norm
    It’s not very likely you’ll make world’s greatest Dad
    If you can’t entertain a child without using an iPad

    When I was a child I’d never be home
    I’d be out with my friends, on our bikes we’d roam
    I’d wear holes in my trainers and graze up my knees
    Or build our own clubhouse high up in the trees

    Now the park is so quiet it gives me a chill
    See no children outside and the swings hanging still
    There’s no skipping, no hopscotch, no church and no steeple
    We’re a generation of idiots, smart phones and dumb people

    So look up from your phone, shut down the display
    Take in your surroundings, make the most of today
    Just one real connection is all it can take
    To show you the difference that being there can make

    Be there in the moment as she gives you the look
    That you remember forever as when love overtook
    The time she first held your hand or first kissed your lips
    The time you first disagreed but still loved her to bits

    The time you don’t have to tell hundreds of what you’ve just done
    Because you want to share this moment with just this one.
    The time you sell your computer so you can buy a ring
    For the girl of your dreams who is now the real thing

    The time you want to start a family and the moment when
    You first hold your little girl and get to fall in love again
    The time she keeps you up at nights and all you want is rest
    And the time you wipe away the tears as your baby flees the nest

    The time your baby girl returns with a boy for you to hold
    And the time he calls you Grandad and makes you feel real old
    The time you take in all you’ve made when you’re giving life attention
    And how you’re real glad you didn’t waste it by looking down at some invention

    The time you hold your wife’s hand, sit down beside her bed.
    You tell her that you love her, lay a kiss upon her head.
    She then whispers to you quietly as her heart gives a final beat
    That she’s lucky she got stopped by that lost boy in the street

    But none of these times ever happened. You never had any of this
    When you’re too busy looking down, you don’t see the chances you miss

    So look up from your phones, shut down those displays
    We have a finite existence, a set number of days
    Don’t waste your life getting caught in the net
    because when the end comes, nothing’s worse than regret

    I am guilty too of being part of this machine
    this digital world we are heard but not seen
    where we type as we talk and read as we chat
    where we spend hours together without making eye-contact

    So don’t give in to a life where you follow the hype
    Give people your love, don’t give them your “like”
    Disconnect from the need to be heard and defined
    Go out into the world, leave distractions behind

    Look up from your phone, shut down the display
    Stop watching this video, live life the real way.
