Good when it comes to emergencies and talking to your friends,
Bad when it consumes everyone’s attention.
At lunch it seems everybody is looking down
At their phone, and not up at the faces
Of their friends.
Smartphones need to change.
It needs to stop taking everyone’s time.
There are more important things in life.
Like actually talking
People could actually learn something
If they looked up. If they stopped texting,
Smartphones are making everyone more
People are taking pictures of themselves
And sending it to people, trying to make their
Lives look better than everyone else.
Trying to make them look
Sexier than their peers.
Smartphones need to change and
Stop making others feel terrible about
Themselves because they see
On their phones that they don’t have
The same things as others.
You know whose lives really are better?
Those who don’t care that much about
Their phones. These people are the leaders who
Have the courage to meet new people and
Shake their hands. Not sending a
message with no meaning to a person.
People need to care about what is currently happening
And not care what happened yesterday on
A social media site.
Smartphones need to stop taking away
People’s ability to communicate on a personal level.
If smartphones don’t change and they
Continue to take over everyone’s lives,
People will stop getting the social skills they need
To survive in the world.
