People on their phones
Attached to a screen
What do you expect to find there?
Absorbed with likes, favorites, up votes
The only thing that matters
Is affirmation from others;
What’s to gain from that?
Two people sit
Across from one another
Looking not into each others’ eyes
But into a thin rectangle
Containing the depths of a world
Where self-worth is derived from the shallow validation of others.
Look up!
See the world as it is!
Not as it is portrayed by the online personality of others.
