Updating a new poem. I wouldn’t consider this one of my best but I got inspired by the last theme from Stanzas: the Internet. The Internet is very vast and constantly expanding. It is also filled with many dangers. I have a few friends in my life that experienced cyber bullying or the Internet changed their way of thinking. So I wrote this poem with that idea in mind. Enjoy and be safe on the Internet.
Life begins on a computer screen,
The internet allows for
A new browser appears.
A new profile is produced.
A window for me to place new photos,
Statues on a wall,
And add new people into my life!
Life is simpler on a computer screen.
Friends can be sorted into categories:
Best, close, acquaintances and non-existent
I just unfriended you.
Get numerous likes on statuses and pictures
That presents a new identity.
Certain pictures get me likes,
Certain statuses get me noticed.
More likes lead to a boosted ego
And an alternate life.
Send revealing pictures.
Blocking all friends,
Till there is nothing left.
Life is now empty.
Mistakes building and never disappear.
The internet, a once free source,
Spreads these misgivings and lies,
Like a virus.
Friends list gone,
Statuses are fewer,
Profile is non-existent.
Computer screen smashed,
And the remaining pieces manifest,
Mould into a beast,
Cold and non-forgiving.
A creature of the internet’s own creation!
