Has social media enslaved us?

Has social media enslaved us?

I don’t know if I’m just getting older

But I find myself less in the virtual

Got a sore thumb scrolling

Lives of people I barely know.


They said it connects people

But why do some get sadder?

Looking at things others have

The success, happiness and love.


Are they really happy?

Or they’re in it just for the likes

Oh how we’ve watered down connection

Ditched the physical, settled for convenient but superficial.


Has it really connected us or made everything distant?

Can’t send a hug, fancy symbols mean nothing

The link meant to bridge us

Burned our lives and enslaved us.
