It's crucial to exercise caution while navigating the intricate carnival that is social media. A world where shadows often hide more than they reveal, and where the clamor of laughter, likes, and shares can mask the true nature of the players involved. Much like a dark circus, it's not always easy to tell the joker from the fraudster. Always remember to question what you see, keep your personal data secure, and never take everything that appears on screen as the absolute truth.
Into the shadow circus I dive,
where laughs mingle with deceit.
'Likes', 'shares', a labyrinth where they strive,
but I promise not to be ensnared by their feat.
Neither clown nor scammer will touch me,
with eyes wide open, their game I'll unfurl.
This digital world, it won't sketch my decree,
for my truth and my light, I won't let them hurl.
Though the networks try to allure,
my mind alert, my heart far-seeing.
I am not a coin in their dark liqueur,
I am the master of my ship, in this sea of being.

This quote is dedicated to all those who delve into the world of social media, navigating through 'likes', 'shares', and emojis, seeking genuine connections but aware of the dangers lurking in the shadows of the digital circus.
