A digital presence and online identity
Showing the world what I want them to see of me
Always be positive
Cover the flaws
Or speak with abstraction
As if they’re not yours
I give my opinion and express my views
Post environmental articles and tech news
A record of likes is there to see
But is all of this what makes me, me?
What’s underneath? Who’s thinking these things?
Am I just copying what my newsfeed brings?
I’d like to think there’s something more
Its just a positive reflection of what I stand for
But something bugs me as I share with everyone and no-one
That I’m moving further away from a life with someone
Content with surface relationships, far away
Local society has had its day
I miss the connection of a friendly neighbor
Who’ll be there whether or not he’s called for
Emotions are raw, and happening now
And someone just being there can help somehow
Comments can’t be deleted, or taken back
But to really experience, I think we need that
