Selfie :Critical



Takes selfie
Takes another
Critical of every detail
Too short, too tall, not enough pout
I wonder how many likes I will get?
My self-esteem is attached to my online personality
Filter upon endless filter
I must look flawless
Looks in the mirror
Another imperfection
Maybe I should fix it?
Am I not pretty enough?
Like him, like her
I just want people to like me
Vapid, self-obsessed
Living in a social media fairy tale  
My life has to appear perfect
Delete, delete that won’t work
Let me take another selfie
