social media blur

In this generation why

why is it that the number of likes on your latest selfie

determines your beauty

While the girl behind the screen

hides her insecurity behind the filters

to fit the social standards of what is pretty

And as you scroll down that popular page

you focus on how you'll never have that hourglass body and a pretty face

Yet we never think about the persons life beyond that insta famous profile

why should we trade self content to fit the appeal of others

when the love for ones self and confidence is worth more than the number of DT's

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
