Working in the dark

If no one reads your writing
Would you have wasted your words?
If no one else hears your angelic voice
Will you have squandered your talent?
If you keep the best parts of your life to yourself
Are you depriving the world?
Or yourself?
Does the work only matter
If someone else sees it?
Does life itself only count
If it is visible to others?
Yes or No?
It’s not that simple.
While the Internet has made it easier
To invite the world into our living rooms,
And to take our living rooms to the world,
It’s made it harder to determine
Boundaries –
Something we humans usually learn
The hard way.
Working in the dark
Might not help with your online presence
But it may help with
Your sense of self.
