Equanimity

Hankering after likes on Facebook and for retweets on Twitter do we pander

Destroying our bodies for that “perfect” post, the portals of Instagram we trawl and wander

Tossing and turning in bed on many a sleepless night consumed by angst and envy

Devoured by anger and enslaved by complexes, we are zombies intoxicated by greed

Conceiving our own despicable and destructive form of a contagious creed

Ultimately we will forage for peace and solidarity

In our elusive search for finding equanimity
