Embers   of   Reality
As the embers of reality smolder in neglect
Socialization has become physically extinct
This awkwardly displaced society slowly forgets
That life keeps revolving outside the screen
Pampered are the youth of this technological era
Who lack the emotional connection of a conversation
The digital world becomes the soul's reflecting mirror
Creating zombies within this distracted nation
A world obsessed with the satisfaction of likes and tweets
Where popularity is based on the strength of the imagination
In a dimension formed on what we'd rather be
To fit into life's computer animated generation
Symbolically we stand victims to our own creation
In a jungle of browsers we vacantly stare
How many countless hours and endless minutes will you end up wasting
Before the beauty of life has disappeared?
