Filterless?

Filter-less.

 

Less as in I am less without a filter

Less attractive less complete less perfect

Less myself

 

God forbid the world sees the amnethyst tones of my dark circles settling

God forbid the world knows I was up all night talking my friend out of suicide

 

God forbid the world sees the constellation of pimples dancing across my forehead

God forbid the world knows I am going through a normal stage of adolescence

 

God forbid the world sees the wrinkles embroidering the valleys of my face

God forbid the world knows this is what surviving looks like

 

Filterless?

Filter-less.

 

Less as in I am less human with a filter

Less genuine less accepting less proud

Less of society's definition of "perfect"

And more of my own.
