Social Media (poem)

Social media detox

We need your social detox before
We cede more poor prisoner of war
Before we forget
Deadlocked not dead set
To seek for permanent net mentor

Blue Sky Days 365

living vicariously
on timelines
full to the brim
with holidays and
nights out
everything is amazing
fantastic
wonderful
positivity spills over
flooding our senses
with disappointment
in our own reality
like the rain that
clouded our summer vacation
… again

truth or lie
obscured, twisted tales
of perfect children
high-achievers
sporting prowess
it’s all incredible
unbelievable
the perfect life
the perfect family
unblemished
untarnished with no glimmer
of sadness
failure
and regret

fake reality
shared to all
the photographs
suggestive of joy
when you walked
alone
head bowed
tears streamed down your face
the truth authentic
yet isolating
vulnerable, we long to conform
to the false
fabricated identity
on social media
