Celebrity

A Poem by Jasmin

Everyday is a popularity contest
Always in with the latest catch. 
Sometimes competition is fierce, 
Though sometimes skills and talent are scarce. 

Trending is the the trend that counts, 
Good and bad everything counts. 
In this popularity contest
Of the celebrated life. 

Friend or foe, everything is a blur
Who you trust, no one knows. 
Everyone has personal agenda
Distracting you from truth. 

Always on the run
With the glitter on the one way train
Until you realize the fall is too heavy
Spiraling down into nothingness you hide. 

Take note my friend
To never forget who you are
Before this celebrated life. 
Because only then you will find
The true meaning of life.

A thoughtful view on the celebrity phenomenon, something which has always been with us, but which has been exacerbated to the millionth degree buy modern social media. It seems many people, particularly the young, get caught up in this remorseless webb before realizing its full implications. The last three stanzas especially call attention to celebrity's dangers, but those who confuse attention with love will nevertheless continue to fall victim to them.

Be careful with your grammar. "Skills and talent ARE scarce." Otherwise, a nice commentary on the meaningless modern life.
