Stolen Dance

Alexandra McPhersonNovember 3, 2021The Media That Raised UsPoetry

The media may have raised us,
But in the end,
Will you care
About likes and shares?
About other people's lives?
Or will it be your memories,
The person you sought to be?
Likes will make you feel like you belong,
But was it a lie all along?
So if today was your last chance,
Make sure your life isn't
Your stolen dance
