Broken Facade

Sun, 12/07/2014 - 20:49 -- kduke96

Who am I beyond the mask?
Behind the facade is a woman.
Why I am no different than you.
I crave to change the world.
To make a difference. To improve.
So why do I hide behind a filter?
Maybe it is to hide the anxious.
Or shyness of having myself exposed.

Because unlike a filtered picture,
my flaws will always show.
The only way to make it through life,
is to bare all of me in stride.
So what do I do?
I embrace the unfiltered me.
Treat every single flaw as if it was a precious rose.
Because I cannot hide who I am behind a filter for long.
Some day, I'll have to let the real me breath.
