I’m studying for my Poetry class and need an explanation.
Tech Mirror
In the twenty-first century, technology arise
It comes with social media, whatsapp, Facebook and Instagram
And a constant stream of services and products arise
Everyone is connected, the society has changed
An so has the self perception
Our self-image has been influenced
Adolescents self-esteem has taken a dive
Central to our lives, self-worth is measured by the number of likes
Fewer likes for poor body image “Sadness and devastation arise, for those with low profiling or fewer friend”
Mass media defines our culture
Media has shaped and permeated the diet culture
Photoshopped images of men and women rule the internet “to enhance their beauty, with artificial intelligent apps”
Reality and falsification cannot be told apart
Yet we all feel attached to the technology
Almost everyone has become a pet to the technology
Beauty is the king of social media
Disadvantages are slowly outmatching the advantages
Many are unaware of the unrealistic standards “they all look real, except in reality”
Yet we judge on the social media presence
Awareness is necessary, social reform is needed
