Instagram Trade

I asked my instagram story to give me topics for poetry and they gave me so many. Someone asked me to write about how social media can make it hard for people to love themselves and seek perfection so i put myself in the shoes of younger me. i decided to share what i wrote. This writing exercise was fun!

FILTER THIS
FILTER THAT

WHY ARE THERE FILTERS TO CONCEAL AND WHY DOES SOCIAL MEDIA MAKE LIFE NOT REALLY FEEL REAL.

FILTER THIS, FILTER THAT
MY FAVORITE FILTER MAKES MY INSECURITY GO AWAY TILL I LOOK IN THE MIRROR THEN ITS ALL THE SAME

COMPARING MYSELF TO OTHERS IS A RECIPE FOR DISASTER BUT EACH TIME I GET ON IM SEEING THATS WHAT IM AFTER


LONG HAIR, NICE BODY, PERFECT FACE
INSTAGRAM MAKES PERFECTION FEEL REAL NEAR EVEN IF ITS ONLY DIGITALLY MADE
AND IM EXHAUSTED OF PLAYING THIS SAME MENTAL GAME, BUT ITS UNCONSCIOUS BECAUSE THATS THE NAME OF THE INSTAGRAM TRADE
