That late-night scrolling…

Excessive workload has left my soul destroyed

In a desperate search for something to fill the void

As social media posts I mindlessly scroll through

Against better judgment I get swept into

Meaningless debates, trolling, hateful comments and more

People tearing strangers apart more viciously than before

I was looking to soothe myself, instead I find

I have managed to further distress my mind

Even when from my device I move away

The discomfort caused by such toxicity does stay

In my mind, making it difficult to focus or relax

Scrolling through social media has exacted a heavy tax..


Once again I remind myself that the better alternative would be

To stay away from social media, especially

When I am tired, sad or indisposed in any way

Tuck myself in bed and sleep my blues away
