I taught myself how to use social media to have my poems spread like wildfire. On Facebook alone, my poems have grossed over a million views and have spread to even more people. I was elated when these numbers started coming. But then…
I still felt unfulfilled.
It was the first time in my life that I had reached a goal I never thought I could hit, a million views, and I thought I’d feel complete. I was wrong.
I loved the fact that my poem got into so many peoples ears, but the target of views, shared, comments, and likes, meant nothing to me. If anything, almost immediately I was like, “okay, now I need 5 million” only then would I be satisfied.
I realized I was heading down the wrong path with this intention. It’s also when I realized what I truly love.
I love messages being spread.
I love making an impact.
I love spreading my light through the world.
