Influence of social media,
has made people lose sight of reality.
When one gets hurt, people flock to take pictures
rather than helping the person.
What’s more important,
someone’s life or a viral image?
Sadly, the latter seems to be
a priority of the mass.
A child being harassed,
it’s the talk of the town;
but did any turn up to help?
I highly doubt so.
everyone suddenly has a story to tell,
of what that person was,
and the mass as always has a huge interest
in making that moment viral
cooking up the various tales of the person no more.
Has sympathy no more values?
It is a sad world over shadowed by internet,
a cruel world, an era of viral
where humanity is lost to reels;
and reels, the new reality.
Happy readings 🙃
