Person Behind the Filter


Behind the lights and cameras,

Behind the edits and makeup, 

I am unique.

Hidden behind the photoshop

Is a girl who just wants to be heard. 

Who wants to be noticed, 

To be cared for,

To be loved and lusted after.

But I also want someone to care for me

the way I truly am.

I want people to see me,

Hear my voice,

and my words.

I am brave,

I am courageous. 

Today in society,

I'm told that confidence is concieted,

That I shouldn't think highly of myself.

But I am strong,

I am able.

I am the person behind the filter.
