Why do I want likes on Facebook and Instagram?
I gave it the power to let it define me.
What is a like? A click of a button?
It really takes no effort to do it, but why do I want this shit?
I get sad when my photos or post don't get enough attention.
For me having this attitude I should put my self in detention.
Why do I think like this?
I know it really doesn't matter, but then what's the matter?
It's like I am living a life of a lie, why?
I want people to like me, but I am doing it the wrong way.
The internet is keeping my real self at bay.
I am not the perfect guy I put myself to be on the internet.
I breakdown, I get mad, I laugh loudly, and sometimes I act like a clown.
I let social media become me, and this is a fight to get ME back.
I don't want it to have control of my life, so let me cut the stronghold. Where's my knife?
I am Raheem Curry and I am human.
I have problems as much as the next man.
I am me and I strayed away from that and that's what is scary.
Who else can I be if I am not myself?
A counterfeit? A fake? I have to get myself together for my own sake.
No more fake posts, no more painting a portrait that isn't me.
I. Am. Me. And it's a great thing to be.
