Fake Filters and False Faces

Location

Without filters and false smiles I am strong,

Even if sometimes I feel I don't belong.

 

I sometimes smile to the sky,

and that in itself is enough to get me by.

 

I don't have many friends,

So I don't often have to make ammends.

 

For those times when I am lonely,

I know I am the one and only,

 

The only one who can take off this perfect mask,

Which is often a difficult task,

 

And to take off that useless filter,

As if it were an annoying splinter.

 

I am a strong, independent woman,

Who doesn't like to cook in front of an oven.

 

Sometimes I dress-up as someone I'm not,

Just to prove that I'm not a robot.

 

To myself when I am true,

My spirits cannot be blue.

 

So without false faces and fake filters I will live,

Because that's all I have to give.
