Selfie has Self that is…

I’ve been hearing and seeing a lot of parents upset with children obsessed with the demon of selfie. I also came across news reports of various accidents while taking selfies. Both of these seemed a little disturbing so here’s my take on selfie for children and parents alike…

🤳 Self i.e.,

Self i.e., crazy
Self i.e., excited
Self i.e., adventurous
Self i.e., glorious
Self i.e., handsome
Self i.e., beautiful
Self i.e., adorable
Self i.e., cool

Self i.e., one with nature
Self i.e., happy with colour
Self i.e., smiling with others
Self i.e., pouting for a while
Self i.e., making a statement
Self i.e., sharing a style
Self i.e., making you lonely
Self i.e., definitely worthwhile

Self i.e., a passion of the generation
Self i.e., a live of own’s devotion
Self i.e., a conversation can be started
Self i.e., a story in the eyes
Self i.e., a person’s own picture
Self i.e., a shade of the human
Self i.e., a plethora of emotions
Self i.e., a face hiding in a filter’s disguise

Self i.e., an identity
Self i.e., now a need
Self i.e., requesting for your validation
Self i.e., calling it as my senseless deed
Self i.e., my expression of suppression within
Self i.e., independent self’s loudest cry
Self i.e., outburst of emotions
Self i.e., I died

Selfie meant all of this
And much more than this could ever mean
Self i.e., a soul so cheerful
Yet I crossed the line to get digitally freezed
Selfie I took for smiles, the likes and shares
For thumbs up and beating hearts, for winks and the stares
Self i.e., sitting on the edge of mountains and corners of rock
Clicking yet another daring picture, before a leap that you call a fall

Selfie no longer gets the giggles and the smile
Self i.e., lost by the obsession of caging it in its own device

Selfie is not bad if it doesn’t take your life
Self i.e., the most important than any background you have behind
Selfie has to be taken with more poses and head tilts
Self i.e., not putting yourself in danger and saving others from the guilt

Take countless selfies of every moment as is
Just be careful where click it, take care of Self i.e.,
