Confidentiality

Confidentiality has lost

In a world where information

Gives one power.

The consequences of which

Boggle my mind.

Other people’s livelihoods

And dignity

And emotions

Are at stake.

Did you give that any thought

When you spoke out of turn?

  1. Very valid point. Also, in the digital age of Internet and everything practically being on the Internet, it is too easy to throw out someone’s livelihood on a whim, behind a mask of anonymity.

    I speak of course of hackers. They take people’s information, their lives, and use it for their own purposes or give it to the world to see.

    I know this likely wasn’t what you meant in the poem but I did want to say, it inspired thoughts.

    Great poem by the way. 🙂
