No need to perform…

Look at me

Notice me

See me

The whirlwind of

attention seeking

Performance based


Sharing your

Every move

With more strangers,

Than friends.

The scrolling trap,

leads to the

constant comparing

and viewing of

seducing images,

Which keeps the mind trapped

in chasing the

next dopamine high.

It only takes

a quick flick

of the thumb,

a simple swipe

to bring instant

temporary satisfaction.

Thousands of followers

Likes and friend requests,

Yet the emptiness your

seeking to fulfill

is a futile attempt

to fill the void

for significance,

which continues

to go unmet.

      That’s exactly the response I felt when writing it. Amen and Ouch! God was really speaking to my heart about motives, intentions and a sweet reminder to keep my focus on placing my value, worth and significance in Him. Social media can be a wonderful tool, but like anything, there has to be a healthy balance. Thanks for connecting, I appreciate your comment!
