A Girl.


Behind the beige powder, behind the jet black liner,

Behind the brave brown eyes, behind the fake smile,

There is a girl.


Aside from the straight auburn hair, aside from the sculpted brows,

Aside from the ear piercings, aside from the pursed pink lips,

There is a girl.


A girl who writes her words, a girl who thorughly thinks about everything,

A girl who uses filters to enhance the beauty of nature, a girl who prefers a beach over scrolling through Facebook,

That is me.


Disney movies over grotesque horror films, homemade meals over restaraunts,

Talking over texting, laughing over crying,

That is me.


I believe in making my own path because I am my inner success,

I believe in staying true to myself and finding a career that makes me happy,

That is me.


I do not need filters that alter the perception on my voice and vision,

I need to speak my mind and see things for what they are,

That is me.
