My Inner Me Became My Enemy


My inner me was once my enemy

to fight back I created a new identity

fradulent and fake as any can be

I longed for pride and simplicity


 But what I gained wasnt expected

naturality and integrity were soon neglected

with all these filters those around me were affected

as if with a panoramic my selfie was collected


If only I were able to crop the photo and show me as a single

removing superficiality and lust for an ego

Do away with the filters and false portrayals

id be able to show my true charm to people
