The following poem was inspired by the photo below.
A recorder sits on a table alone
With no one to give it a home.
Who knows what stories it has to tell
Or what thoughts get lost in the wishing well
Of voices it carries in its memory bank.
It holds a one-sided conversation
With no one to give any indication
Of whether the messages have reason or rhyme
Or pieces of a story lost in time
And the listener knows not who to thank
For the words of hope and wisdom.
Don’t leave this recorder all alone
Pick it up and take it home
And if there are no messages inside
Record your thoughts from deep inside
Your soul, and do not hide
The message of God’s love.
Here’s a special message for you,
For when you’re feeling sad and blue
This recorder will hold true
Your deepest thoughts and emotions.
Do you leave it all alone,
Or do you dare to take it home
And pour your heart and soul
Into the digital ocean?
Don’t let your thoughts disappear,
Capture your precious words for the world to hear
Keep them close at hand
With the touch of a button at your command
