Write a poem using only questions. (by TianEn)

Dear Google
questions from gen z


dear google
why do i hurt 
so much?
do i go on my phone
too much?
how much sleep do i need
how much water do i need
how many hugs do i need
to not fall apart?

dear google
why do we hurt
so much?
do we go on our phones 
too much?
are we asking the right questions and
why are do the answers
make us want to scream?

dear google
are we alone?
the generation with all the answers
so why can't we answer
anything?

dear google
are we lost?
the generation with google maps
so why do we sit on the pavement
powerless?

dear google
do i stare at the ceiling too much?
what does that mean?
and should i go outside more
should i see my friends?

dear google
do we stare at the ceiling too much
should we go outside?
it feels safe in our rooms
what does that mean?

dear google
will we be okay?
will our generation survive
or will we just cry?
is it okay to cry?

    Vulnerable, and powerful! The concept is fantastic. The ending hit me hard. Every question was well thought out and wonderfully real.

    i felt this. i felt this so hard. the questions your asking here are so thought provoking and powerful, and they're questions that i and many others have asked more times than anyone knows. i think other generations need to have a little look at this

    That’s an incredible ending, with the delete history part. I really appreciated that formatting as well, and the repetition is amazing.

    This is powerful and thought-provoking. I love how it’s the unique perspective of searching on google. And I’m always here if you need some to talk to.

    This is so powerful! I love all your questions, and how they tie together. My favorite part is the very last line, I think it really ties the whole poem together.
