ofilter now you can see my flaws
My skin isn’t
airbrushed my makeup is worn from my day
I started out like an
angel clean and pure
Then I found these
They distract me from who I am
And pointed to who I wish I was
don’t shine that bright all day
They turn tired and red and watery quickly
They are intense and brown and
And help me see the world for what I wish it was
A place where filters didn’t exist where people could coexist
Without the connotations of opinions but the strength of cognition
A place where I didn’t have to show you my
best angle but where I could show you my best smile
If you were
worthy, if you didn’t wear a filter then I’d show you mine if you show me yours if not I’m left all vulnerable.
We all have these opinions of what society must look, act, think, and talk like, no one is sharing the truth of what society is and doesn’t have to be;
We are all different in a million ways my smile is full of laughter as your might be full of
pain, we all dance around the idea that pretty is the same.
I don’t need
approval because I’m finally comfortable with who I am, I found my natural self throughout this cosmetic and demanding land.
I am a brown eyes artist who accepts the flaws of appearance because I’m unflawed within.
#nofilter can you see my flaws? They’re bold like me.
Born into and
innocent, the way things are supposed to be.
