there is more than this
more than
timelines and updates
of the highlights of our lives

more than
what you did and
the places you go
dotted on maps and
every
single
second
posted in frozen photographs
because
you think it’s important
because
you think its special
big smiles
because
others are going to see
and
you’re proud

there’s more than this
and it’s suffocating
beneath layers
and pages
and screens
and vanity

and the life
you want others to think you’re living

but you’re not
living

my God
there’s more than this
something better than this
more worthwhile
more valuable
more important than this

and it’s dying
inside you

because it cannot be uploaded

find that
and you have something worth sharing
