If there's a void within your soul
Your pain and sorrow will reside
Look no further for the answers
No more fears for you to hide

Just smile for the camera
Watch the camera smile back
All your pain will disappear
You are now part of the pack

It doesn't matter how you feel
Only matters what you flaunt
It doesn't matter if it's real
Just as long it's what you want

Empty spaces, lonely feelings
Can be filled with fancy things
The real value is not important
As long as it gives you wings

You can fly above the clouds
With your soul stuck to the ground
And when you fall down from the sky
Just hope your soul can still be found

I'll tell you how you should look
Show you how to be accepted
Tell you how you should be thinking
Show you all the things expected

Remember this one rule
Only matters how you appear
It doesn't matter what you are
Tuck away all of your fears

So now that you understand
It is now time to begin
Only look what's on the outside
And never search yourself within..

This is great. And let's face it, life is crazier now more than ever.. people could basically manufacture a virtual self via social media and live most of their existence as that manifestation.

Image driven, no real content. Selfie-aware but no introspecton.

Thanks for the great message, so well done!
