Living Behind the Screen

Updated on February 18, 2018

Everyone has a voice, behind the screen

Everyone has a choice, behind the screen

Everyone is tough, behind the screen

Words can be rough, behind the screen

Now everyone is an expert, behind the screen

Easier to cause hurt, behind the screen

Opinions can be heard, behind the screen

Hate you prefer, behind the screen

Easier for you to hide, behind the screen

Easier to follow lies, behind the screen

Easier to sway the youth, behind the screen

Hide the truth, behind the screen

You can choose to stalk, behind the screen

Cowards will talk, behind the screen

Drama can be told, behind the screen

Life can unfold, behind the screen

Our eyes are straining, our heads are down

Ignoring the present events occurring around

Life passing you more as we bury deeper

Into our screens social media stock climbs steeper

      Thank you for the comment. I am glad you enjoyed. My roommate gave me the inspiration.

      A powerful, provocative and reflective piece. It is always easier to disbelieve than to believe, because belief is an act of building; disbelief is an act of breaking. We need Light, but we fear this the most. Funny old world. Just musing. Excellent poetry, told well.
