“Social Media” Poem

Social Media

By Ashley O’Hare

A portal to another world;

nothing here feels real.

The pictures, 

the stories—

too perfect for my eyes.

A cyber museum

curated specifically for my kind—

feeding on insecurities by design.

Only 1% of those online

will thrive.

The remaining ninety-nine

will join me

in therapy,

in church,

on a retreat—

fighting to make it out alive.
