We seek to make a change
A change in society is hard to maintain
Social media has taken over this century
Engulfed by the ‘perfection’ which is drowning the reality
The pressures of looking a certain way
Expectations which are thrown our way
A degree, A house, A successful career,
A great relationship, A child
An untainted illustration
Perfect, untouchable, unblemished, unstoppable
Who sets these expectations?
Who controls our feed?
How do we limit what our eyes see?
When it’s plastered across every avenue believe me
Depression is on the rise
Children as young as 5
Are questioning their identity
Wondering who they’re meant to be
We are causing a loss in youth
Forcing these innocent minds
To conform to social constructs
Yet no one wants to take the blame
Social media is all a strategic game.
