It may well look
But the cover won’t reveal the book.
A snapshot in time
All create the illusion online.
Apply a filter,
Live video stream
Could slightly boost your self-esteem.
Prove to the world you’re not lonely.
How many likes?
How many friends?
Follow life through a warped lens.
Don’t look too close
Careful not to overdose.
Screen shot of
Did you see what she wrote?
Try not to really show your soul.
They’re not things you’re going to see.
Turn off the computer,
Put down the phone
Or you may well find you’re all alone.

I am sooo going to show this to my kids. Fortunately they both have active social lives with “face to face friends” to balance their on-line time. Also I am lucky that they also use at least some (they are teenagers now after all lol) of their on-line time to keep in touch with face to face friends who have moved abroad: the best use for on line that I can think of.
Thank you so much. Your comment has made my day 🙂 Pleased you can relate. Best wishes, Sophie
