Remember when girls went through that "selfie" phase?
It was like for every picture of their face that they posted
The hashtag was "no filter"
Followed by a billion heart emojis and smiley faces
Maybe sometimes a quote from a song
And I always thought
"There is something behind that photo"
Everyone has secrets to hide
And everyone has filters built in to their personalities
Because no one wants to feel exposed
How can we?
With this society's expecatations of perfection
And their definitions of beauty
No wonder girls have more insecurities than zits on their face
Or fat on their stomachs
The world judges and criticizes us
But the truth is
Every person is beautiful
And the real beauty comes from the moment
We take our filters off
