Poem: Social Media Hypocrisy

I have a thousand friends, but I am anti-social.

I am filthy rich, but I am poor.

I am ripped, but I am sagging.

I laugh out loud with a straight face.

I ‘like’ what I hate.

I boast that I’m humble.

I am the author of a fake reality TV show.

I speak profoundly regarding topics about which I have no knowledge.

I support and share what the mass shares.

I have no voice as I am merely a wall echoing the voice of society.

I have become so liberal that nothing is wrong.

I sell myself, for the ‘likes’ of the people.

I have become nothing, my life, is a lie.

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Basic Medical Sciences, University of the West Indies Mona. I am currently involved in research associated with Lactate Metabolism and it's association with physical performance in our Jamaican athletes. My research also involves type 2 diabetes mellitus. I really enjoy a good game of chess and I believe it is the most amazing sport ever created. I also play badminton and I'm an amateur artist (painting and drawing). I have many other interests and often find myself attempting to be involved in each, all simultaneously, life is short isn't it? I appreciate music, from classical to acapella to reggae, great vocals really intrigues me. I'm a seventh day adventist, and I have been all my life. Feel free to discuss religious beliefs with me at anytime. That pretty much sums me up right now. Hope you enjoy reading my blogs. Contact me at 1876-858-0783 or aldeamfacey@gmail.com
