Social Media

It used to be simple and a bit of fun
to check our social media each day
It used to bring smiles and laughter
seeing celebrations shared this way

It used to bring a date for our diary
to gather together for a special day
It used to bring a glimpse of sunshine
seeing friends and family on holiday

It used to bring happy memories
good times shared from the past
It used to bring lovely reminders
those nights when we had a blast

Now it is simply not much fun
much bad news shared each day
Now it brings fear and sadness
many tragic stories told this way

Now as we head towards winter
blue skies are turning cloudy grey
Now our future seems uncertain
impossible to plan that special day

We need this pandemic to be over
for it to be gone for good at last
We need covid-19 to be a memory
bad news left in the distant past

Social media can be very negative
there are many faults we can find
Social media can also be positive
a way to lend support and be kind

Thanks for the likes Hugh and Paul and for the comment Paul.
I wrote this after seeing two posts on Facebook yesterday of friends who’s parents have passed away. One posted again this morning saying she was wasn’t a fan of Facebook but so grateful and thankful of all the kind messages she had received.
