People say our generation is hungry for instant gratification (or clout, if I’m not mistaken) and I proposed a reason why.

Clout

In the sea
of nonsensical posts
and memes
and beautiful poetry,
my work,
my joke,
my post
is lost. 

And for a moment,
I feel useless
until I see that 
one like,
one comment,
one review. 

That little bit
of validation 
of gratification 
of clout,
as I’ve heard it called,
is enough to lift my spirits 
until the next post.

    Oh my God, I find this so relatable! I sometimes can't stand it when people don't talk about my work because I don't know what they think about it! Nice work!
