Social networks

Entrap, mislead

Leave me

Disconsolate

Wishing for more

Make me feel

Unknown, unloved

Unprepossessing

Lowering

My already low self esteem

Bruising

My already deflated ego

 

But I brush aside this feeling

As I see

Pictures changed

At the speed of lightening bolts

With a slight change in pose

Edited in a manner that won’t disclose

Flawed skin and minor deformities

Beneath the glitz and glamour lies

Real-life absurdities

 

Behind the bravado

The pancake makeup

Hides a girl just like me

Wanting to be

Accepted, admired,

Respected, desired

Torn between the conflict of

Being an anti-conformist and “fitting in”
