Portrait To Selfie - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Emotions lost
Color on canvas merged
With change of times
Dust settled
Patience evaporated
Long held traditions
Brush vanished
Tripod with canvas
Installed in the museum
And I saw this history
In the eyes of lens
Today we live in era of selfie
Quick, adjustable and
No long sessions to wait
For self-painting
No art required
Not even third person
Click by self
Anywhere and everywhere
And in few minutes
On social media
Talks about, debates on
And so the likes,
dislikes and Comments
No need to travel to see the
Beauty of the creator
Paints and moods and
The background
And the life moved on at a brisk pace
We are in the era of Selfie
Where self-esteem, self-ego
Took over the art of actualization
Introspection and self-assessment.

    It is the most egotistical fad I have ever seen.
    Thanks, Mohammed
