This poem is my responce to what I witness on a daily biases in our society ….our lack of awearness for people and surroundings… whether dropping off my child at school, standing in line at the grocery store or at a restaurant watching people sitting across from each other focused on their cell phones-totally oblivious to the person they are with.
The German word gesundheit actually means – keep your germs to yourself so as you don’t get me sick.
Illustration: I created this original illustration in Adobe illustrator. The person has been struck ill by the plague of narcissism. Although this person has contracted narcissim, as with most illnesses, he can recover… As can our society if we just recognize our illness and start to take our medicine of kindness and consideration.
