increasing every day by the minute,
making life easier with fewer steps
for our generation and the generation to come
Let’s not all get together, let’s just group chat
Why come over when we can just facetime?
What happened to having intimate conversations with someone,
now we what? Talk through a small screen
and show emotion through cartoon faces called emoji’s?
What happened to walking up to a pretty girl and ask her out in person,
Now we choose to “slide into dm’s” For what reason though?
To hide the fear of rejection or are we all just too damn lazy?
We don’t take them out on actual first dates anymore, where you don’t
barely know about them and the whole point is to get to know them.
No. Now we first look at their social media profile to “figure her out” or to
see what you consider a “hoe” or a “good girl” or a “ Nice guy” or a bad choice”
What happened to kids begging their parents to play tag outside?
Now they beg daddy to let them play fun run on their phone.
What happened to kids pretending to be knights, princesses, kings, queens?
Now they play Clash of Clans on their iPad they got for Christmas for hours.
What happened to kids riding bikes and going on adventures with their friends outside?
Instead, they locked themselves inside and play games online together
called a virtual reality.
We can’t escape it
Our generation is being mentally attached to technology
Apple, Microsoft, all of them
Have our generation by our throats
Wringing out our attention and money like a towel
As they gain our attention, our money, our lives
We are only becoming the corporation's robots and slaves
Creating bad examples for the next generation.
