"Be the change you want to see in the world!"

Social networks in my time:

Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook’s fine.

The former is full of trolls,

The latter is a mindless droll.

However, the middle is my friend.

It really doesn’t have an end.

On this platform,

I do see,

People that are like you and me.

People that are not the same.

Prince, pauper, of moderate fame.

People of many colours,


And genders.

People that #greatness

Friends that #squadonfleek

Where am I in this world?

Not on top nor on the bottom.

Not in the #selfies of my #friends.

I reside on the other side,

Not in the shadows or the spotlight.

But in the sky with ROY G. BIV

I simply write #pride

For my friends of many colours

For my friends of many genders

For my friends of many sexualities and styles.

I place myself on the side that wants #equality

I find myself with the people like you and me

Those of us outside the ordinary.

I don’t broadcast hate or pass the blame

I simply want LGBTQIAPD to mean something.

Instagram is the place it can happen.

Facebook is full of rip-offs

And Tumbr is a new-age reddit.

Instagram is my friend

In this age of the Internet.

I can be happy there and feel free

It truly is the place to be.

Written to express my feelings for a poetry assignment. I hope other people can relate to my words.
