Snap chat anonymity, snap chat animosity at life’s inequality and fragility,
Hash tag helpless, hash tag hate,
Snap chat mediocrity, anesthetize against the allure of failure,
Shiver and quiver or seethe at group judgment or insanity.
Hash tag control, hash tag take charge of your fate,
Snap chat pain, snap chat nothing to gain.
No one understands the neural haywire
Caused by ceding control to another’s desire.
Is it the voice in your head or the taunts on the Internet?
Hash tag who cares, hash tag your death will register as a blip in news affairs.
Time to Instagram the moment of mental torment,
Of seeking redress after losing the game of life to loneliness.
Facebook pretense of happiness
To a virtual audience you wish to impress.
Then plan a grand exit with a gun or a plane,
So that others might finally acknowledge your pain.
In life, you were a psychological leper,
Sinking deeper and deeper into a quagmire of despair.
Are you really that rare?
In death, dragging society into your abyss,
May make us scurry by or stop and finally look at what is amiss.
