Lost In The Algorithm
Note from me: This poetry/song has darker undertones.
It is a commentary on the state of our world and how we all interact with each other. Although I am also guilty of constantly checking my notifications, this poem is a reminder that there is more to life than how many likes, or clicks you get online.
P.S. Please remember to take breaks from the internet. Your mental health matters.
Validate my feelings
By how many clicks and likes I have.
Update my status.
Check my ranking.
Check what's trending.
Check the popularity!
Who and what is the New It?
Addicted to the constant ringing
Of my notifications.
A shot of dopamine into my brain.
Globally made closer
Through words and images
That are shared through
The power of technology.
Communication is made easier!
With an easy click.
Without the waiting game
If your postal mail
Will be rejected.
Yet, the sense of connection
Have never felt so fragile―
Connection made behind the screens,
Without verifying our true feelings.
A mere imitation
To what a human relationship can be.
To what a community can be.
Identity is lost in the statistics.
The human connection that is
Lost in the algorithm.
