Labels

When you look in the mirror, what do you see?

In the eyes of society, nobody is what they seem to be. The beautiful girl with the amazing singing voice is just an ugly fat girl by choice if you choose to ask to society. What you see isn't how you're perceived. Labels have taken over and done their deed. They do nothing but deceive. As soon as you get a confidence boost, a label is thrown at you and it's like you're under its roof. You feel as though you can't escape it. It's a picture and it's perfectly painted, but that's far from truth. A label is nothing to compare you to. You are what you believe so if your brain has been deceived, then this label that you see is all you''ll feel you appear to be. Why do we let labels describe who we are? We let truth get clouded with false visions. The good thing about labels is that they can be removed. Stop clouding your brain with these false truths. Yo don't need a word to be a substitute of you.

You are perfectly imperfect and labels don't define you.
