Selfie Nation

Window shopping in a branded store

Closet is full but still need some more

Waxing, manicure and pedicure

High heels, spas, feet are sore

Stomach is full but eyes need more 

Talking like a nun, actions are hardcore  

Thoughts are flying, heart is kissing the floor 

Body all grown up, soul needs to be mature

Mini skirts and bare skin

Nothing left to explore  

Body, booty and selfie shots 

Eye lashes, nails nothing pure

Empty life need some likes  

Soul is dying but there is no cure

Catching sharks with fancy lure 

You will regret, what you now ignore

  1. It is a constant fight to not get caught up in it all…not because of the attraction of the lifestyle but because it is like a poison, creeping into every aspect of our existence. Working on self awareness and reading great poetry helps!!

  2. You wrote such a lovely poem! We women are so guilty of the selfie! Of trying to get the perfect picture, duck face just so we can get a guy. But sometimes we just need to be ourselves

  3. It’s a sad fact that life is like that for many people nowadays, and not just the youngsters. I can never understand the obsession with shopping, self image, or the constant need to take selfies! Nicely expressed.

  4. I know the image, but you probably won’t believe me if I tell you that most of the women I know are very reasonable using their makeup, dress quite modestly and are loved by their husbands and boyfriends 🙂 Young girls simply need a good example of modesty, elegance and health. Unfortunately, the media gives them exactly the opposite – all the useless things you mentioned in your poem.

    • I am agreed with you .they are role model for us .its a human nature that we all want what we don’t have .grass is always looks green on the other side 🙂
      Media is forcing to buy something or be something what we don’t even need .friend of mine bought a Apple watch for 18 grand and he wore it only twice .

  8. Thank you for liking “Autumn Moon” and for following my blog. I like this thoughtful poem. It makes me sad that this is the “ideal” lifestyle perpetuated by society and the mass media. What is ideal about it? Eating disorders, excessive debt, and broken relationships are some of the unfortunate consequences people experience as they try to live up to this ideal, and in the end they are still unhappy. An overly materialistic and self-obsessed culture breeds discontent and dysfunction.
