millenial poetry

what is this strange life we are living

every beautiful moment 

be captured 

than felt

all smart things spoken

be stated

than understood

 

every place visited 

be checked in

than experienced

 

everything eaten

be nicely composed

than devoured

 

every story

viewed

than heard

 

all events created

than occurred 

 

what is this strange life we are living

calories burned

for a pose

 

faces painted

souls drawn

 

sentiments commented

feelings withdrawn

 

injustice petitioned

endeavour reduced

 

patriotism posted

opinions fuelled

 

Charity raised

empathy erased

 

everything shared

yet inequality

everything liked

still war

 

what is this strange life we are living

playgrounds unused

children unamused

 

narcissism infused

youth confused

 

humans displaced

humanity dulled

 

what is this strange life we are living

news manipulated

truth adulterated

 

religion outdated

activism castrated

 

music saturated

artist frustrated

 

love calculated

money celebrated

 

what is this strange life we are living

emotions unstated

moments created

relationships complicated

 

what is this strange life we are living?
