What are you looking for on the internet?

Omnipresence?
No matter how good the interface
You can still only ever be
Fully in one place at a time.
Omnipotence?
While the digital age has made us
More powerful than any previous generation
There are still glaring limits
To our humanity.
Omniscience?
There are some things you cannot
Come to know
By simply Googling them
Regardless how hard you search.
Distraction?
Delight?
Escape?
Many of us have found a world online
That has brought exceedingly great
Wonder, enlightenment and convenience
As well as unprecedented temptation
And outlets for the worst versions of ourselves.
No matter what it is we find on the internet
We will still have a real world to live in
Once the screens are off.
