A Digital Problem

Sometimes it’s hard to put down the phone,
I suppose their addictiveness is well known,
I tell myself I can put it down when I want,
But when I do, there’s a voice that likes to taunt,
Did someone send me a message or reply?
Am I missing the latest news or outcry?
Did people see or like my last post?
It’s in these questions that I become engrossed,
Real life happens all around me and yet,
If I’m not plugged in digitally, I fret,
Signs I might have a problem are there,
But isn’t it just people, the internet and software?
These things don’t sound all that detrimental,
But I guess their impacts are incremental,
