How does it work again?
You need to live by the rules
And, it’s called approval.
You are approved,
When you get instant likes.
Witness your aching souls crying out
For the lack of hearts reactions.
You must love the sight of your screens
More than the touch of the skins.
Sometimes, I can’t help but ask,
When was the last time,
I was ‘alone’- not staring at a phone?
Peace of mind is replaced by exhaustion.
In the name of experience,
You are being imprisoned in an artificial cycle of social media.
Forget about approval-
You forget what is your reality.
You can’t escape the poison-
Now that you have been bitten.
The rumours were true-
That the rules did manage to poison the mind.
And, I don’t approve.
