THE PRESSURE OF RELEVANCE

This virtual world
…which has made for all a stardom stage
Has gifted a curse

II
It’s hard to watch
…as shadows struggle to drown eachother
…to get into the light meant for all
A pull and a push
…a blast and a clap back
…hatred and betrayal
…nakedness and its madness
…sins and their bins
“I am”
…and “You aren’t”
All for meaningless likes
…fake loves
…fun making laughters
…exaggerated wows
All overlooking the many well calculated anger

III
Before bodies meet
…disagreements are sealed
The way troubles magnetize innocence to destroy
…marvels
What is this mask
…all in bask
…from dawn to dusk
With pressure tasks
…with no force tags?

IV
I wonder the many minds
…lacking rest
I wonder the many hearts
…feeling unease
I wonder the many eyes
…on blind routes
I wonder the many fingers
…buying enemies
I wonder the many intellects
…buying deceptions
As I watch the fake dilution
…making all a look alike
Confusing

V
It is a virtual world
Which can now make and unmake
I hope fingers which now replace legs
…will thread cautiously
Because this pressure bought out of leisure
…can measure the length of your treasure
And murder a future so beautiful
…without mercy

  1. Hello there dear Cecilia! You fine poet and wise woman. I gain confidence from your visit to my site, and think that yes I shall write soon again, though illness aches and distractions interfere these days. Perhaps. Smiles…
