The screen is your life,
Social media tells you it’s amazing.
Likes and comments are vital
To your well being and self esteem.
Meanwhile the real world passes you by.
Real people with interesting stories,
Only useful for a good picture,
To show the rest of the world.
You connect most over the world wide web,
Not with the people sitting around you.
Learning life lessons from a screen,
Rather than by really living.
Deep emotions escape you,
Because you are to busy trying to keep up
With your fake online life
That everyone else must believe.
You die a little
Every time your phone battery does.
How will you live,
If no one can see your life?
