Distractions

Our lives have become

a series of distractions –

we turn to social media

for the friendships we crave,

we use dating apps

to fulfill the love we lust for,

we watch shows

to avoid what is occurring in the world

 

We block our vision with devices

to convince our mind we are satisfied,

we create paper towns

to fill our lives

when they are only 2-D facades

hiding our vast emptiness

 

But we accept it,

rather than take action

to make a difference
