There are many ways to change a picture of yourself

But without any effects to them

Who are you really?

I stared at a picture of myself the other day

Without any filters

I saw a normal senior in high school

Trying to find a way in life

Trying to start a new life as an adult

But deep down inside

Through my eyes

There was fear

The fear of being alone

Having to live somewhere else

Other than home

But at the end of the day

I know I can conquer it
