Coming down is the hardest thing


Stop doling out life advice on facebook/
With your "meaningful" quotes/
Do you even know what they mean?
And must you post the sob story of your breakup in thinly veiled references?/
That boy wasn't the love of your life, I promise/
Taylor Swift lyrics in your status?
Well aren't you original
"Ask you anythingg" on formspring?
Where is your personality?
(And for the record, no, we cannot pretend that airplanes in the night sky are shooting stars.)

Inspired by a great number of irritatingly generic facebook friends. Enjoy!
