Social Media Facade (Poem)

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not, and oftentimes we call a man cold when he is only sad.” ―  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  I keep them laughing, They all think that I'm doing okay, So many wished for the life of me, The face behind my profile picture isn't what they see, Smiley emojis that hide my frown, But when I'm off social media my world comes tumbling down, You see, having many followers doesn't mean I'm not alone, In the real world, I have struggles of my own. Likes, comments, thousands of shares, I wish I knew someone that truly cares, Social media is just a highlight reel , These happy moments are only a cover-up of what I try to conceal, Of all the people I make happy, I'm the one who is sad, There isn't one to make me glad, Yes, Influencers have their insecurities too and, They're real people like the rest of you! “Maybe we all have darkness inside of us and some of us are better at dealing with it than others.” ―  Jas
