Welcome to Modern Society;
Where people spend more time texting than talking
Where a piece of paper has more value than life itself
Where people care more about the newest trends
than their best friends
Where emoticons have replaced emotions
Where people focus more on what others think of them
than what they think of themselves
Where our possessions are worth more than our dignity
Where people care more about others mistakes than their own
Where children would rather play games on a screen
than on a playground
Where our self-esteem is controlled by our peers opinions
Where checking Facebook is easier
than catching up with old friends
Where drive throughs have replaced home cooked meals
Where celebrities are praised and the flawed are shunned
Where people are quicker to chase after the newest bands
than their dreams
Where a teenager's knowledge
is determined by their grade point average
Where people with creativity and individuality cease to exist
