Janzajma poetry societal


Open your eyes and see a thousand times better than through any screen
No matter the amount of pixels, true beauty it will come between
FOMO, is the new black
Everyone’s clothing is on track

We think it’s smart and functional,
And that our need to check it is optional
A fun addiction that came out of nowhere like a game
If we keep at it we’ll lose friends but might gain short term fame

Why is this disease spreading everywhere
Even the haters take a peek here and there
Sadly it is not short but most their lives
With time everyone’s hope dies

In the end we’re all alone,
Just arrived home, first thing I do is look at my phone
Before I wasn’t there and now you aren’t
Before I was unsure now it’s apparent

Author’s note:

‘Open’ is about how many live through their phones in todays society. I wrote this in a moment of self-reflection of always being conscious of my phone use and the need to use it.
