A like, a follow, a tweet, or shares

Are the traps my generation ensnares.

A world lies trapped within the screen

Voicing the thoughts of the poet, athlete, drama queen.

One wonders if it could have been foreseen;

The demise of humanity, the loss of green?

An illusion, a virtual reality

Of foes turned friends, of artificial glee?

Nature is but a tool exploited for beauty,

Making our lives public is our civic duty.

We live through images, statuses, tweets

The pulses of likes making our heartbeats.

Too consumed by the world trapped within our screen

To discover the world trapped within ourselves.

  1. Good day, I think this poem is great. It’s like telling the world how it feels about living in a social networking era and how it affects our daily lives with just a small gadget.
