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.
