Write a status,
Write on a wall,
What's everyone up too,
What's on your mind?
~
Post a picture,
Write a comment,
Add a friend,
Ignore or confirm?
~
Time passing by,
Time wasted,
No time on what's important,
All time spent on the social network.
~
Numbers go up on the list,
Write on their wall,
Few return the favor,
Sound familiar?
~
The network consumes me,
All time spent on it,
Accomplishing very little,
Obsession over acceptance.
~
Privacy nonexistent,
Who will see?
Only everyone,
Post it for all eternity.
~
Need to get away,
Need to escape the social network,
Face with reality of the book,
I'm an addict.
~
Hours turn to days,
Days turn to months,
Time away equals creative lives,
And happier days.
~
Avoiding the facebook of high school,
Avoiding the drama,
Avoiding the social network,
Taking control of my life.
~
Dignity where you stand,
Have morals for yourself,
Keep what's private; private,
Realize the importance of you.
~
I'm an addict of facebook,
Two weeks without the social network,
And I'm still breathing,
Are you an addict of the network?
