Adieu to Addiction


This craving to remain connected
Is a sole bane of internet
Minds taking shelter in smart phone
Disclose that they are eternally lone

They rely on second’s updates to remain assured
This is a mask to conceal that they are insecured
Number of virtual friends keep on adding
Alas! Not a shoulder for plaintive sharing

When you are sullen and spirits sound low
Members at home grow genuine concern to show
Stop paying interest to social sites endlessly
It’s time to invest quality time in your family

    True internet supports the underlying craving to stay connected. It also is a support for the people who live away from families. Enjoyed the poem. (Report) Reply

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
