ON FACEBOOK STREET

I can take a stroll with my fingers
And look through the windows of timelines
Or speed on the road of feeds
To see many from much
I do have a chamber whose doors strangers can knock on
And if allowed
…walk in
But are all I’m seeing real or fake?

II
Many images look flawless
Curves and muscles
Perfect eyelashes and pink lips
Flawless skin and six packs
Even some sadness can be posed
And many a happiness over imposed
…I love the latter

III
But I do fear breathing beefs
Which have no bells of notification
Just a reaction and many an unknown enemies
…shadow your path
…in hope of a virtual beating
How horrible it is to be caught in a fire you knew not existed
But the fun outweighs the oops

IV
Sellers struggle
Lovers quarrel
Cassanovas deceive
Play girls dupe and swerve
Spammers hide to harm
Partners act to birth jealousy
Advocates change minds and bite
Influencers are loud
…can turn bullies
But still lead conversations
We’ve managed to create a world out of our world
One we can edit to fit us
A place we can be slim even in our obesity
A place we can be tall even in our shortingos
A place we can be loud even in our timidity
A place we can act perfect even in our chaos
This is the Facebook street
Where loneliness is only for outcasts
And excitements reign

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
