The power of social media increases day by day
How do you engage with the world in a meaningful way
On various social media outlets out there
How do you let the world know that you care
About certain things, ideas, happenings around
How do you refrain from adding to the noise, but still make a sound
Loud enough for people to hear amid the cacophony
Find a balance between authenticity and raking in money?
There are influencers all around with engaging content
With millions of followers, their lives are probably spent
On social media for the world to see
In their stride they take any form of publicity
While the accolades are high, criticism can be scathing too
Placing yourself out there is scary, it’s true
The pressure of social media makes people attempt
Every trend to increase visibility, more time is spent
In packaging old stuff than creating content unique
Because authenticity garners less followers and more critique..
I can go on and on, but the one positive I see
Is that an ordinary person can achieve the status of a celebrity
Social media platforms, despite many ills,
Create the most democratic playing field still..
Thus here I am, posting content no one reads
In the distant hope that someone would like my instagram feeds…
