People Who Failed Majorly On Social Media
Claire Miles - May 2, 2019


By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.
The Real Meaning of “Old Town Road
Out of all the Cyrus clan, Billy Ray was the last of them we thought we wanted new music from. And a year ago, most people didn’t even know who Lil Nas X was. That all changed when Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X collaborated on the hit song “Old Town Road.” The hip-hop/country […]

Social media has completely changed the way in which we communicate with each other, and has provided us with one seriously epic advantage: when something hilarious or silly is said, it becomes published and shared for the entire world to enjoy. Here are some of the funniest examples out there…


Marvelous Mom



Really mom? Way to go.  You sure know how to make your son feel good on public platforms.  Yikes.  That’s surely the last time he’ll go out for drinks with his mama.



S.O.S Selfie



Sometimes, you just really need that epic selfie, and are willing to go the extra mile to get it. This guy was so eager that he actually broke into a house by sneaking in through the window. Did it for the likes!


Baffling Birthday



How could it possibly be that one’s birthday is the same day that they are born? Life is pretty crazy, now isn’t it? Especially some of the people in it and the ignorance that is out there.  What’s even worse is that it’s being shared across the internet!



Handy Hand



What could possibly be handier than a hand that serves you both as a selfie stick, and as a fake boyfriend that’s holding your hand in a seemingly romantic picture that you actually took yourself? Not much come to think of it.


Brutal Breakup



Facebook is a pretty epic platform for a seriously brutal and hilarious breakup, one that the entire internet can see and appreciate too.  Just goes to show, you’ve got to be careful about what you post! You never know how it be will be responded to.



Social Suicide





The only thing that this girl is truly saying goodbye to right now (other than America) is her social life and status.  Hopefully, there are still people that haven’t yet seen her status. Maybe there’s time to still save herself with some friends out there.


Mischievous Mama



This mamma is feeling super young at heart, and couldn’t care less about anything other than having a blast.  She is certainly setting a good example for her daughter with her dating life, teaching her daughter what’s truly important in life. Not!



Debit Dystopia



This clueless Facebook user somehow can’t seem to understand why her debit card was used by someone else. Perhaps it has something to do with how much information she chooses to share, just a thought though.
