People are so dependant on social media.
It's kinda sad really.
They no longer communicate truely face-to-face.
But why should they?
In real life you have to be raw, make mistakes, experience pain...
while in their virtual worlds,
they can manipulate the perception in which others see.
On social media they could appear to be the most content person,
but in reality,
they use razors as a paint brush, their wrists the canvas.
Don't get me wrong,
people can easily hide behind masks and pretend to be okay,
but the isolation, the desolation,
that technology induces creates a cage around us.
Only, this cage is invisible.
We are not aware that we have become encaged,
until, the emptiness creeps up.
You feel as if you are completely alone in this world.
You look up and the the only thing you see is the light
that is produced by the screen of technology.
So instead of seeking help from those around you,
you glance back down at your screen,
searching for even a glimpse of validation,
something showing that you are doing something, anything right.
Just like a rope, the notifications you see pull you back in.
You have become so addicted to seeing how many people
have brought the perfectly constructed lie.
But the question is:
Can you find the truth,
or is it too far buried?
Just a few thoughts I've had...
