Viral World

Smiling pictures
of happy homes
and lovely destinations
— my viral world

friends and followers
live magical lives
sun filled days
and evenings of love

my life looks shabby
in comparison
with these people
I hardly know

I create my viral world
only capturing images
of what I want to see
if not reality

sunsets, food,
my smiling family
behind every perfect portrait
lays a painful mess

does food taste the same
without posting photos?
are vacations as fun
without seeing the journey?

do likes
add true friends
or comments
add meaning?

or maybe

if a tree falls
in the forest
but isn’t recorded
did it really fall?
