Jackie De Klerk

The more she faked, the more she ached.

Jacquelyn C Burruss-Newman

On social media
we paint an accepted image.
But in reality,
we bear a painful grimace.

Debbie Gurriere

Putting on a happy face
for all the world to see.

Shilpika Bagh

A happy face on ‘Instagram’;
is a tainted version
of her ‘inner storm’.

Melissa Loveland

She paints a perfect picture
for society
though her heart is broke
knowing she will never be,
what she pretends to be,
in reality.

Sherry Greene

You see,
we put our best face forward.
We hide the blemished rest.

doesn’t fix your unhappiness;
find a way
to be truly happy
without having to pretend.

I Photoshop every picture
before the world can see.
So tired of hiding the real me!

Felicia Holmes

She paints
an online picture
of how she wants to be,
but the unrealistic image
is all anyone can see.

With the color
of transcending scars
she painted the one
she wanted to be.

Social media leads us to show what is not us.

Rosemary Dawson

The irony of social media
is that despair is
often hidden behind
a facade of success.

I painted a smile on my face
for the whole world to see,
so no one would ask
what’s ailing me.

on social media
to avoid the sadness of the reality.

is a ‘Filtered’ life.
For your own sake,
do not live in fake.

you better be
a damn good painter.
