Keyboard Warrior

Hatred behind a mask:
This is what the social world has descended to.
A keyboard warrior generation;
Trolling the vast spaces of the web to pick and scratch
Preying on the morality of someone else’s unfortunate reality.
Behind their pixel screen they wax lyrical on the topical
(Forgive the irony screaming from this page).
They believe in faceless crime,
No karma for harm caused.
They fight with ‘wrds ov h8’,
Forging illiterate empty threats.
They hail the corruption of free speech,
Illiciting pain from 140 characters.

But for once, I hope, they take a breath and pause,
For the suffering their words can cause,
Ends here, with a note to say:
Long live the responsible speaker,
Using voice to change the world, for the better.
Resonate your typing loud, to drown out the trolls of the underworld.
Fixate your thoughts on the construction of positivity,
To save the destruction of our social reality.
