'Social' media

We all want to be liked
To have people see
The version of ourselves
We choose to be
And say, yeah
That's someone I admire
I aspire to be like
We all want someone
To look back on
The snapshots we've accrued 
Over years of holidays, 
Boozy nights,
And picture perfect food 
And say, look
Here's someone who got things sussed
We all want someone
To validate our lives
To comment that we're doing just fine
You're great
You're pretty
Your smart 
Well, I guess that's a good start

We all want someone
To click that damn thumb
And validate the effort
Of keeping the mask on

Brilliantly penned Ellie - its all about wanting to be 'accepted' and I particularly love that final stanza. I don't do FB Ellie, it great for other's who want to let people know what they are up to especially if their families are far away, but its not for me:-) hugs jan xx

A very beautiful written poem, social media has now become a part of our daily lives, no matter what you do, you ll find yourself posting it so that people could know, as today s Saturday, my school holiday and fb is block for today s day, I honestly don t have anything to do, so it really has become a good part of our lives
