New Age Trends

Date Written: September 6, 2017

An age where we can talk to everyone

But nobody knows what to say

It's getting old and lost it's fun

Out off style and so passé 


I have scars on the inside of my mouth

Because I'm talking to myself

It hurts my jaw with out a doubt 

Looking at the life of someone else


We all get lost in the vanity

It takes the human out of humanity

Such a sad calamity 

We soak up life with a battery


Caught up in all the new age trends

Missing all my digital friends

Devolving feels like such a sin 

Hiding behind a self portrait grin

    True, but confusion, fear delinquency and ultimately criminal tendency and plunge into
    Failures is a new order ,good theme

    Really interesting poem. Well structured, & an interesting take on things most people overlook due to our society being so about staying as .oder as possible.

    Very good poem and so true, I think we have lost ourselves with the ever changing technology. You have articulated this so well in your poem.

    I have always been a curious soul. I have people watched for eons. I have always enjoyed a conversation with the aged and wise. This experience has made me rather wise to the people that hide behind a computer screen. Do get me wrong any interaction is welcome however there is nothing like experiencing sight in 3D touch smell pheromones that you almost never detect hearing the echoing of a sound wave bouncing in you ear in some cases you even get to the and taste a living being. Just ramblings. Good rune

    I can not find my copyrighted poem “Sometimes” in which I received an editors choice award in 2008.
