We Are a Sad Generation

Who are you.. under that mask

Who are you.. under that mask

The 21st century they say

We heading into a word of isolation

A world of being alone

Sleepless nights

Limited interactions in real life


Double tapping the pictures

With tears on your eyes

Depression and stress

Eating us alive


I asked myself why..


Broken trusts

Used up bodies

Closed up minds

Masks on faces


Where do I begin

To trust someone

All over again ...


We chose to pretend

we pretend to be happy

We pretend life is good


Thanks to the filters

Welcome to a fake life

Well, so far this has been a year like no other. Your words ring very true if this situation becomes the norm for the current generation it will be "sad." Hopefully, this can be controlled and it doesn't become an ongoing health issue/concern for years to come. Good poem.
