Pixelated Generation

IMG_7519

Pixelated generation,

Square eyed and wired up.

We see through screens not a,

Looking glass.

Liberated yet confined,

Online,

The notification generation,

We twiddle our thumbs and

In fantasy lands we play.

We’re virtual,

We’re viral,

We’re out but not outside.

Fresh air deserves a selfie,

Friends deserve a like,

And our faces are nothing without a

Profile.

Revolutions storm the media,

Not streets,

Campaigns are hash tags,

And chants are tweets.

Keyboards are weapons,

Each Enter a

Shot.

We’re aware,

We can see,

Our world has shrunk.

We’re lost,

We are struggling

Our WWW has us stuck.

We’re silent yet social,

Loud but not heard,

Contradictions define us

Lose us

We’re absurd

We’re hypocrites

Immortal machines with

Decaying

Youth

Our hearts are

USB ports,

desperate for interaction.

We download, off-load

Our emotions are all

Online.
