Numbed by Numbers

Zero to nine, just 10 digits
How they have changed our lives!
But so many numbers to remember
One forgets, the more one strives

A number in every password
At least four in every PIN
Stored away somewhere in memory
For writing them down is a sin

Numbers on every ID
And so many on each card
Intended to make life easy
Instead making it so hard

I fear waking up someday
From an uneasy slumber
Looking in the mirror to see
Not my face but just a number
