You had a good moment
when you spoke from the heart
but now obsess over Insta posts
when this was only just the start
you gotta keep moving, keep creating art
as the next part is here, there’s a fresh page to mark

So why do you keep coming back?
grabbing your phone, checking that app
for a dopamine drip, then once you quit
you reopen for just a quick hit
was it worth it? did it feel rewarding?
to see that red heart while your world is still burning
reopen reopen while always just hoping
to feel loved again, to wake out of mourning

You see, now is the time to act
time spent only looking back is a mistake left for the past
as your mobile phone lulls you in a haze of depressed paths
you can still change course and recall this correlation exists
the more time you spend on social media
the more life you tend to miss
the more love you tend to pass
