People always say a picture is worth a thousand words
but what does a picture say when it’s just of you?
People always judge a book by its cover
but what happens when you are the unopened book?
Things that go into a selfie:
Approval from friends
Things you will never see in a selfie:
The scraped knee you got at 7 years old when you were
learning to ride your bike.
The embarrassment you felt when you got period blood on
the back of your pants in 8th grade.
The tears you cried when you got you heart broken for
the first time.
The love you feel for your friends and the crazy moments
you have shared.
The anxiety you have when you talk in front of a full
The loss you feel when a relative dies.
The accomplishment yet nervousness you have in
anticipation for graduation.
The fear yet excitement you have for the future.
I am made of the stars, the sun, and the moon.
I am the combined love of my parents.
I am made of al the colors of the rainbow.
I am the writing on the bathroom walls that gives you hope.
I am made of infinite possibilities.
I am the quiet girl in the back of the classroom that finally raised her hand.
I am made of mistakes and flaws.
I will never be perfect.
The girl who gets emotional over books and music.
The girl who observes in the hallways and classroom.
The girl who never really talks but enjoys listening.
The girl who has fallen down repeatedly but always picks herself back up.
The picture is only half the story,
I am more than just a pretty face.
