Virtual is

Image

Virtual means unreal, simulated, somehow pretend

and yet, we go again willingly into this place

of dots and dashes, endless invisible highway

choosing to chat with faceless strangers for hours.

Virtual means not actual, made up of nothing solid

and yet, we spend our free moments here

games or research, expanding our own reach

alluring far away places able to enter our homes.

Virtual means something different, not expected

and yet, these warm friendships feel so real

the words we share over seem to ring true

without judging on appearance, without prejudice.

Virtual reality, a coined phrase of contradiction

this is as real as you or I, as real as life

we put ourselves into this place each day

and we learn friends need no face, just love.

Reality ~ is perhaps ~ much more virtual?
