Notice Me

mental-health-1420801_1280

Instagram me,

Fake smiles for a like,

Slide into my DMs,

A thousand followers for a selfie.

 

Dog filter my SnapChat

Ten seconds of fame,

Smiles of grandiose,

Over grey-scaled matte.

 

Pseduo Facebook friends,

Tweet your dreams,

Pin your interests,

Slanted life through a Tumblr lens.

 

Notice me,

Not the debris.

  3. This is a beautiful piece. If you don’t mind me asking, what’s your view on social media then?

    • It is a means of communication, a way to meet others who have similar likes as yourself and together enjoy the things that have led you to meet. Without the need to travel long distances. Of course as with any other things, people find a way to monetize it or use it to gain some sort of fame. It’s only natural for us to do that. No issue with that.

      My only issue is that we don’t see or show anything except what we want people to see. Perfection or as close to it as we can get – because of people, the very people we are meant to connect with end up ridiculing us and there’s nothing we can do because they are behind their screens. So we put our best foot forward always.

      Sadly others don’t think of this and always imagine people are living the high life. Perfect smiles. Perfect pose. Perfect life. It’s a lie.
