Over exposure

Updated on January 12, 2017

Over exposure

Lighting up every now and then, is her smartphone,
She glances it, while looking at the TV all alone.

The show is a comedy,
But her eyebrows are on fury.

It is 1 am, sleep is yet to gain, her attention,
None of her postures seem relaxing.

When her mom comes to check,
Her face is now an open book.

Understanding her mother's concern,

She cries, “I know, i have been overly exposed,
To the unruly world of virtual world.
It operates on me with precision of a surgeon,
Won't accept my anomalies, leaving me guilt ridden.”

She then utters,

“I will now be going offline, closing all my association.”

      The Internet and social media has brought with it a lot of positives, but the addictive effect and power it has over vulnerable young people can be devastating. You covered it well in this short poem.

      Thanks chitrangada ji. Yes, it is a difficult situation to handle if the parent is unaware of the side effects on a personality due to over exposure of teenagers to social media , and mistakes that can destroy them.

      You have conveyed a very important message through your hub!

      Parenting nowadays is more difficult these days due to over exposure of children. While there are many benefits of Internet, getting addicted to it is a matter of great concern.

      Thanks for bringing attention to this matter of great concern in a beautiful way!

      Hari, when I see young people spending quality time doing nothing but staring at their smartphones, I feel concerned for them. Families are becoming more and more detached. Your poem conveys that message well.
