Social media, Poetry by Dasha Jennings

although it has enrich our lives with the vivid imagery

of current events taking place around us.

it’s destroying our sense of humanity at the same time.

We are so focused on who has the most likes,

that we are losing our connection to other human beings around us.

The more likes, hearts, and views we get the more addicted

we become to these sites.

It feeds your addiction for a while,

until you realize that nobody knows of your

existence nor cares,

they just know who this person is before them on this platform.

Social media is this platform where we tear each other apart,

not bring them together.

If you do not fit into the criteria,

then you are not one to show your existence on this site.

For if you do then they will tear you apart

by making the latest memes and sharing them worldwide.

Social media you’re turning everyone against each other.

For you sweet an innocent features are the reason for mass suicide

and countless families suffering worldwide.

Gemre: society and dark
