The truth behind the mask

She feels like she has to put a smile on
For her friends and family and followers
She only puts it on to hide her true feelings
She spends most of her time on her phone and tablet
They give her all that she needs
Instagram and Snapchat make her feel good when others ‘like’ her photos
YouTube distracts her with its music and entertainment
WhatsApp helps her keep in touch, with what’s going on at school
Google gives her info, useful facts on anything and everything
Candy Crush and other games give her something else to do
Over and over and over again
She has no real time for family and friends
They invite her to go out but she says ‘no’
She’s scared of crime; she’s scared of the crowds
And her mum and dad are scared too
Even when she does go out, she’s still on her phone
She knows she has to change
She knows she’s bored
She knows she’s lonely
She knows she needs more time with her family.
