Hollowness | A Poem by Blanca Alicia Garza

Pretty young girls
Playing at being women
Full of rivalry
Friendship is rare
Empty heads
Lonely, starving souls
“A like” ignites their fire
“No likes” show a bit more
Childhood lost
Technology is the thief
Parenting time
Replaced with expensive “toys”
Hollow hearts
Craving for affection
Finding none their
Spirits wither.
