The Threat Is Real - Poem by Waseem Sherif

The truth's in my genes
eating me from the inside
hungry as it is
consuming like a blight

the truth's never true
deceiving the weak minds
artificial truth
in dystopian times

it is coming forth
like a virus, in terabytes
crawling its way out of
ev'ry systematic life

get ready to shut down
now you're OFF, not alive
all systems check
you're officially digitized

Topic(s) of this poem: cynicism , truth

Poet's Notes about The Poem

just a few on-the-spot lines which i never intended them to be about what they ended up being about! !
still, identifying oneself by technology IS dangerous.
