I’m walking on an exhausting path.
At times I feel torn between ‘must’ and ‘must not’.
Suddenly, I feel like I’m a clown: a Facebook clown.
I’m driven by other forces, but not my own.
The intensity not only scares me,
but my own energy is swallowed up over time.
And suddenly it strikes me:
'I don’t like to be a Facebook, Twitter, Insta,
or any other clown'.
