to be an authentic voice... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

The echo chamber
swallows up
and consumes
the naive & disconnected

Makes them feel alive-
popular and empowered

Pushes them farther and farther
from reality itself
for the echo chamber
feels loud
feels huge
even feels real

It is a la la land
of passionate strangers
and agent provocateurs

Wiser folks listening
to a larger world
a more complex
and complete world
a more honest world
and a more nuanced world
move on and away
to be an authentic voice...

leaving the echo chamber convinced
that echoes are all that matter.
