I fell in love with media few days after I was born
It could have been 4 or 6 or 12 but key point is- I was torn
Torn on the idea that media could be my life
Of course, I didn’t know then it could also become a strife.
Good? I grew up knowing all the time what my friends do:
Just send me your location and I’ll come visit you!
Bad? I got my first school boyfriend and we broke up before we started
And people all of a sudden debated the reasons we parted.
But 18 years into my life I had to move out from home,
To start a new life and feel like on a constant roam.
Media reached out to help and taught my mom face time,
My father learned the online banking and my brother to send memes.
It was hard but it felt better to be calling than alone,
And the long rides to university did not feel so unknown.
I learned streets and translated items at the shop,
Cause once media gets started, there’s no way you can press stop.
So this may not look like real love letter,
Maybe more of a thank you, it got better…
But this is real, it’s a heart-filled piece
Of how media made my problems all come at peace.
