Playground Vs Playstore

The spirit of teaming and the fun
Thrill of knock-and-run
Those swings and slides
Giggles and Mari go rides
Laying on the grass
Couting the stars
Those Hazy memories of summers
Nostalgia is now all we possess
Happiness Of catching
the glimpse of a rare bird
All that has now perished
On tiny victories
Grand Maa rewarding us treat
Walking down together
on the street
Everything had vanished
Joy of Kicking a ball
on the parkway
lofty graphic games
stole it all away
Everything is simply
a click away
Eyes Stuck with a black screen
all the day
Creating towers of the stones,
Bed time stories replaced by phones
Hide n seek, that mud on clothes,
Now confined to orchestrating a virtual realm
Inside the smartphones
Writing in a new notebook
Doesn’t elates us anymore
Relaxation and euphoria of a book
all that now seems bore
We forfeiting all that
Fascinated by technology,
Being obsessed to that
It appears to be the priority ,
Technology inundating endless variety ,
ascertaining its superiority,
Dings and Beeps,
Supplanting the claps and jumps,
Flabbergasted with scroll
swipe, clicks and likes,
Smiles constrained to selfies,
Enmeshed in a realm
That doesn’t breathe,
Worried about the
Battery’s drainage,
Carrying with us
an emotional baggage,
Inexhaustible longings,
believing in virtual clings,
Ignoring the feelings,
Busy texting and gaming,
Sharing a smile
abd shaking hands,
Is no more required
To become friends,
Requests are sent
we now tag, share and comment,
Likes assessing the fame
Isn’t it all like a game
That’s being played
Not in the playgrounds anymore
But in the epoch of the play store.

  1. “Enmeshed in a realm
