Wonder what went wrong
Logical drive is on overload
Processor beginning to heat up
Restart, look for faults
Diagnosis in progress
Working in safe mode
Launching the anti-virus
Screen flickers, then
“Warning: Virus detected”
File-name: depression.exe
Unable to delete
Moving it to the vault
Too late, system infected
Need system-restore,
Looking for the back-up
Nowhere to be found
Drastic measure required
“Faith” Operating System
Must be re-installed.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Very interesting these succinct computer operations translated in the human plan. Perhaps we've just begun to behave like robots...

Jingle and Gospelwriter thanks, Technology is man-made that's why it carries with it the imperfections of men.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
