Insta-Society

In this insta-society
Only numbers matter
Figures on a screen
Reveal your worth
And the tap of a key
Can shift a desolate mood

But all is ephemeral
Instant is temporary
Fading into oblivion
With the next post
Of a superior moment
And a better rated smile

The grass is always greener
On another profile
But the grass is filtered
And the green tainted blue
For a screen is not a mirror
And life is not a picture

In the blur of a scroll
Is it even you I see?
Glowing on the virtual stage
Yet weeping in the wings
Merely an edited version
Of our morphed society
