I Stay The Same Underneath


I stay the same underneath,

What my selfie seems to be.

Whether on or offline

My smile stays the same.

I am the player,

And Instagram's the game.

Underneath the clothes and shining light.

Is a boy with bigger dreams,

Than trying to get his selfie right.

I know that I'm not perfect in the least.

But get to know me

I'll make you laugh at least.

There is one more thing I'll say

Before I go.

Because my Instagram pics

Aren't just for show.

I stay the same underneath,

I smile because I'm happy,

Not just to show teeth.
