Avert your eyes children,
because your attention span is up,
social media is calling you back into it’s arm,
to hide you from a world filled with pain.
Until it hurts you,
then you will understand;
how quickly the world that embraces your stupid statuses
about being thugs, basketball, or doing drugs
will turn a blind eye to your sorrow as you cut your wrist.
Social media claims to be bringing us together,
but it took the individual out of individuals
and replaced it with what can get the most likes and re-tweets.
I bet you if you put a status out there,
about how you really feel,
the responses will surprise you;
because even though you may receive a million
you could see them the next day
and they would look through you as if your status update was a joke,
and as if that one person
who told you to die
never spoke a word to your soul.
Social media didn’t create friendships…
it created monsters.
