Seeking proof of my worth
Who am I?
How many compliments will suffice
To allow me to believe I look nice
Will these emoticons and fleeting comments
fill the ache I feel
How much of this so called affection is even real?
This shallow and surfacy pleasure
chances for true relationships does hinder
What if we seek out conversations instead of likes?
Could we heal a million hearts?
Allow a million real friendships to start?
Away from the screen
More than a technology stimulated dream
I choose this
I want to heal
