Facebook and self esteem

Oh how she is always smiling
Sometimes by a picturesque river bank
Sometimes engulfed in overflowing hugs
Sometimes a bit demure, in what looks like
A quaint little bookshop that also sells coffee
She is always, always smiling in her pictures
And you flip through them one after the other
Caught in a little eddy of bored procrastination

How come some people have these smiling lives?
What am I doing wrong?
I wish I could see my life like that
A series of smiling pictures. Taken all over the world.
Some people just get it all *sigh*
Albums from everywhere..Paris to Rajasthan..

Somewhere, on the other side of the world,
Someone is going through an exact same loop
Looking at your pictures.
