The Noose Selfie


Where did what's right and what's beautiful become so intertwined?

When did I becomed defined only by my jaw line?

Why does #MasterCleanse and #LookingThin appear more than  #Eating and #LetLoose?

How do I change the way 8 mega pixels can only capture a noose?

Well, I scrub off the filters and I put a lens cap over the rope.

If it captures nothing then I can not become what everyone else hopes.

Now my eyes see but it is blinding and I am not used to this truth

That now I have #NoFilter and can no longer see only what I choose to.
