Social Facade

Surfing through Instagram stories,

It seems all hunky-dory,

Why do you feel a stillness,

Wondering whether life is weary.

Afraid of the social declivity,

Do you feel the constant urge?

To update a happy status,

An artificial splurge.

The emergence of this social network,

Has it brought us close or taken all far?

Life on social – a good aesthetic,

Looking amazing, like of a superstar.

It is not all perfect,

The acceptance needed today,

A social facade causing havoc,

Don’t let it disturb you in anyway.
