Plastic Infection


Society has lost sight of connection

Internet that hides true reflection

Defined by the number of likes equals perfection

The selfie game is nothing but a plastic infection


A selfie is not a portrayal of me

It does not tell you the way I feel

Or the world that I see

Yet, there is something that it can reveal

A selfie shows my insecurities, vulnerabilities, and artificial appeal


Without it all, I am an image of something remarkable

Formed by a rare combination of space particle

Raw photo captures the moment that arrives

Photograph the real YOU that shows what it's like to be alive
