Instant Gratification

I think about our world today and how different it has become, it’s a place of instant gratification no more waiting for what is to come. I remember growing up and running home to see, if at some point throughout the night my new crush would be calling me. In class you might pass a note to a friend, to make plans when your school day would finally end. At night it was chores, dinner with family, and homework and if you were lucky a little tv. Today we say hi through a text and an emoticon explaining our day, even if we may need to talk some don’t know what to say. If there is something new that we don’t understand there’s no need to explore and learn, just type it and hit search and the answer is in your hand. There’s no more anticipation for something you adore, just click a button and it shows up at your door. How can we be shocked when it comes to our health, when we have an ache or a pain we just call a Dr. and the cure is waiting right there on a shelf. There are pills for this and shots for that and when one doesn’t come close we just double the dose! Then when your Dr. thinks you better and your pills are no more, you just head down the street to the Devils front door. He is happy to see you and show you his stash of miracle drugs you just give him the cash. There you have it Instant Gratification, your pain and cares will all go away, along with everything, everyone, because you sold your soul today.♡
