Double Tap and Scroll

Rehearse smile and pose
Shrunk into million pixels your beauty known
Double tap and scroll
Your smile is thrown into the forgotten zone

Rehearse smile and pose
New found attention and your privacy blown
Double tap and scroll
All you have proven is how much you are alone

What joy lies behind false pretence
What truth can a stage present
With colours intense
Are likes worth a single cent

Sometimes, I am guilty of gaining satisfaction from likes.
After all, we do crave for that bits of acknowledgement isn’t it.

I guess we have to be aware of this craving
and remind ourselves, that likes aren’t everything.
Let’s not get trapped in this hedonistic treadmill of social media.
