Who I Am


Shutter Snaps

Perfect Picture

Fancy Filter

But which one?

Sierra? no

Sable? no

Sutro? Yes, that's perfect.



But Who Am I,

Behind the filters?

Who Am I,

Away from the social media?

Who Am I,

When no one is looking....?


I am the "horse girl"

Spending hours atop my trusty steed,

galloping, jumping, preparing, perfecting.

I am the "smart girl"

Constantly working day in and day out,

for that A+, for that gold star

I am the "shy girl"

who hides behind those filters,

cover up my lumpy nose. 

cover up my pale complexion,

cover up my imperfections.
