    We sit and we type,
    And we stare at our screens ...
    We all have to wonder what this possibly means.
    With our mouse we roam through the rooms in a maze,
    Looking for something or someone,
    As we sit in a daze.

    We chat with each other,
    We type all our woes....
    Small groups we do form,
    And gang up on our foes.

    We wait for somebody to type out our name....
    We want recognition,
    But it's always the same.

    We give kisses and (((hugs))),
    And sometimes flirt....
    In IMs we chat deeply and reveal why we hurt.

    We do form friendships,
    But why we don't know....
    But some of these friendships,
    Will flourish and grow.

    Why is it on screen we can be so bold,
    Telling our secrets that have never been told.

    Why is it we share the thoughts in our mind
    With those we can't see,
    As though we were blind.
    (Some really are, yet they see ,better than most )

    The answer is simple,
    It is as clear as a bell.
    We all have our problems
    And need someone to tell.

    We can't tell real people,
    But tell someone we must....
    So we turn to the 'puter and to those we can trust.

    Even though it is crazy,
    The truth still remains....
    They are Friends Without Faces and odd little names.
