All the lonely people

A deep sadness exists today. Profound and devouring. An inability to cope. Light lost in the darkness. Heads down. Absorbed in technology. Losing contact. Lost. Alone. Day after day. Locked away.

And do you think this is awakening ?(psychosis and spirituality)

More questions- Psychosis and Spirituality
