Masquerade bawl

Social media masks our downfall

Party at the masquerade

except it’s social media ties

and filters for masks to hide

beneath and try

to stand out in a crowd

of followers too scared to believe

in a life worth living in

so they’re surrendering

hoping for a better life

the next time traveling
