The Authentic Me

by Hunter E Jones


Does the selfie define me?

Am I worthy? Am I pretty?

What am I, with this filter?

After the selfie, am I fitter?

Then again, should I care?

The tone of my skin, the length of my hair

These things are surface

My words are deep!

My strength, my courage

These qualities I keep

I am smart and I am bold

The weight of my character

It’s worth more than gold

A flat picture, a filtered selfie

Will never be, the authentic me
