The World As I See It.... - Poem by Annalee Hopkins Somerville

I don't understand today's world,
The internet has made it weak,
We use to be tough skinned,
Now, we're whinny and bleak.

Complacent, Prejudice, Defiance
We seek to often destroy,
The very things that we held dear,
That filled our souls with joy.

Gone are the days.
Of speaking one's true mind,
Now we hide behind likes,
Comments and lies.

Little petty head games,
Social ignores. outrage, shock,
Can you guess what's wrong with me,
If not than you are blocked!

It's rather sad to see,
How weak and feeble we've become,
Oversensitive, Desensitized,
Sickening and Numb.
