Picture Perfect

Snap! I've been captured!

But luckily it wasn't me.

It was the person I wanted to be.

Beautiful butterfly, hilarious hipster

but don't forget, that was just the filter.

The real me struggles daily

Far from perfect

but perfect enough.

Because I am me

and the fraudulent filter

was only a picture.

It couldn't capture the essence.

The essence of a perfectionist,

the essence of a real woman.

It couldn't capture all of me.
