When you see her dolled up

on the Facebook feed;

when he’s full on smiling

with “I’m killing it!”

as his creed;

You might begin to think you don’t measure up

with your bills to pay


your messed up hair.


But comparing social media selves

with our day to day

isn’t fair

to our true selves

and can lead to dismay.


So, when you open up your social media screen

remind yourself not to accept everything

that can been seen.
