Smartphones and Dumb People

Look up.

They say we are a generation of smartphones and dumb people.

Wasting our days on empty social media.

Trading real life for an artificial world.

Missing life because we’re looking down.

So let’s return to a quieter time.

Before glowing screens and flitting pixels demanded all our attention.

When people walked down the street or rode on the train with their heads held high.

Let’s return to the good old days.

When we looked one another in the eye.

Before smartphones made us dumb.
