How do you measure happiness?
With a ruler or a scale to weigh it?
Is there a price or level of success?
Or your amount of online influence?
Is it what you have? Or what you do?
Or is it how your public image looks?
Are you keeping up? Do you need more?
Do your parents even like you anymore?
Why aren't you happy like everyone else?
Because if that's what happiness looks like
And if that's what they're trying to sell, then
I don't want a happiness that's superficial
Happiness doesn't need to be liked to be valid
You could finally discover your life's purpose
And still get less likes than someone else's
Picture of their dinner and a stupid caption
Social media cannot capture how good you are
So don't let the likes (or lack thereof) distort how
You perceive yourself or your self worth because
The truth is that happiness has also been distorted
