Trapped
We are trapped
Trapped in a world
Where popularity
Decides how pretty
Funny
Smart
A person is.
We are trapped
In a world
Where the numbers
We care about
Are the number of likes
On a screen
Or how many followers
We have
Best friends are turned into
Enemies
All because they didn’t like a post
I can tell you a lot about
Being trapped
How all your life
You grow up knowing
You aren’t at the top
But you grow up knowing
Wishing
Hoping
Someone would notice
Generations before me
Looking down upon us
I am the new generation
Older generations look down
Upon us and frown
Saying we aren’t
Smart
Bold
Innovative
Telling us everything
We are doing wrong
But never how to do it right

We are trapped in a world
Where one thing means another
And the only things that matter
Are the number of
Likes on a screen
The number of followers
On an account
