Reality Check

Reality Check by Marie Anaïs Tessa L’Etang

I still remember as if it was yesterday
I was playing on the streets along with all the children in the neighbourhood
Little ones, the teens and even some of the adults
Street football was the one everyone loved
It was like a generation match, youngsters versus the adults
Everyone would be present for the street games

Reality check, 21st century…
Streets are for cars only
Games are only virtual
Chatting means social media
Acceptance means be someone else on the internet
Parents no longer know their kids, they only know work
Kids feel adopted by their babysitters

Video games, video calls, video conferences
Our lives resume to technology
Robots created to replace humans
Yet humans are turning to robots bending to each new ‘update’

I am from Mauritius but grew up in the Caribbean. My main hobbies would be reading and writing.

Writing has always been a big part of me since I was 8 when I won my first poetry writing competition, and ever since I never stopped writing. Writing is a crucial part of my day and is more than just a hobby for me.
