Without a Filter

Location

Without a filter...

You’ll find a girl who can be insecure about herself and the way others view her;

You’ll probably see her hanging out with her friends though;

She’s often timid around unfamiliar faces,

But then she remembers that most people around her are friendly and willing.

 

Without a filter...

You’ll see a girl whose face is not considered pretty in her own eyes,

Unless she’s wearing makeup.

You’ll find a girl who was actually afraid to let others touch her face

Because she fears the oil will disgust them.

But then she remembers that most people are not so immature.

 

Without a filter...

You’ll remember this girl because of her friendliness;

You’ll remember this girl because of her amusing awkwardness;

You’ll remember this girl because of her ability to crack random jokes;

You’ll remember this girl because of her new sense of self-confidence in her personality;

But you’ll definitely remember this girl for her silly, sassy attitude that eases tensions and allows others to relax a bit.

 

She hopes you'll see her for her real reflection in the filter-less mirror of life.
