A Love/Hate Relationship

Snapchat always comes in clutch
When I want to keep in touch
With my friends that live far away
To wish them a happy birthday

And it’s always nice to have Instagram
When living in Amsterdam
To follow new friends
And the latest trends

But sometimes it’s a nightmare 
When I always seem to compare 
Every post on my timeline
To the mirror when I’m offline

Lately it feels like my days
Go by in some kind of haze
Because when I finally stop scrolling
I continue the next morning
