Ever experienced an awkward encounter at a wedding where you were forced into a conversation with a weird relative or with an aunt you didn’t even know you were related to?

Thoughts and Answers on Suicide and Bullying.

I am sure you all have heard about the TV show ‘13 Reasons Why’, a story that revolves around a girl whom committed suicide. Being bullied was one of the many reasons why she did it.

Poem: The ‘Perfect’ Life On Social Media.

_DSC4922
The ‘perfect’ lie/life, is the pressure to maintain appearances dictating our lives?

A Poem by Alia Nadhira

An illusion created,

A skill mastered,

A manipulated surface of your soul.

Character built solely off perfection,

An artificial taste of happiness,

You are the dominant puppeteer

Of your followers.

You plaster a smile on your face,

As your mind starts to decay,

As you drown in your own thoughts

Of no longer wanting to exist.

Striving to escape this harsh reality,

Grasping onto whatever is left

Of your perfect life,

Burying your misery behind social media.
