The Perfect Filter

The world describes using filters

and wearing makeup

as a way to hide our true selves from the world

They believe a girl who wears a ton of makeup

Can't stand how she really looks

or a boy who hides behind filters

can't stand to be out of the darkness

When in reality

I wear makeup and use filters to make myself happy

I see no shame in who I am

But I can tell a bad picture from a good one

I see no reason to not use the tools we are given to enhance a photograph

Behind the makeup and the filters

I'm exactly the same

#Nofilter is no longer just a hashtag,

but a way to show superiority over those who do use filters

Yet, it all just boils down to true happiness.

Do you what makes you feel comfortable

Use filters and wear makeup

Just do you and it'll fall into the perfect filter
