Poem #12

Beneath our storebought clothes,
The smiles we plaster daily on our faces,
And the filters available in Instagram,
It’s getting pretty easy to cover up our real feelings, faces, personalities.
Now, our friends and followers can see ‘who we are’ by just getting online.
They don’t need to talk to you face to face anymore.
It’s easier to send someone a text than pick up a phone and listen to someone else’s voice.
We all prefer our internet personalities to how we deal with problems in real life.
The internet gives us freedom, anonymity, courage.
But sometimes, we take those traits to the next level,
And we don’t see all the pain we leave in our wake.
