Her perfect life is on display in a museum of deception
Viral sensation
Influence teen nation
This standard they must attain
To be loved;
To be worthy;
Everyone is perfect.
Not a flaw to be seen
When you can be anyone you want to be
World Wide Web Warrior wields wounding words
Digital tongue lashes out licks to a stranger from afar
Awarded the Badge of Bravery by Anonymity herself
For fiercely feuding the flawless facade
Saying the quiet parts aloud
And she, she takes her licks
Their poison takes hold
Wounds running deep
Crumbling Confidence
Splintering her Soul
Absolute Annihilation
Web Warrior Brutality
Result- a Fatality

Here lies Her.
Friend, Family, Influencer
Gone but not Forgotten
Forever on display in the museum of deception
The curtains opened, and the truth displayed
A cracked mask upon the pedestal,
Impossible to maintain
Shattered reminders of a life that’s as fragile as still cooling glass
Broken by the cold harsh hearts
As the Golden Rule need not apply online
Lesson learned: Use at your own risk!
And yes, Web Warrior
It was all in good fun;
But now Guilt’s work has begun
Your tainted tongue stained with Cruelty’s blood
Stand in line and do your time
Anonymity digs Her grave
