I don't believe in filters.
I don't believe in coloring in the lines.
I don't believe in making apologies for who I am.
I do believe in unconventional beauty.
Not all beauty is in the form of long hair and well shaped bodies.
I am beautiful in the way that old books and family heirlooms are beautiful.
I am rough around the edges and torn and battered with a story to tell.
I am beautiful in the way dandelions are beautiful.
I am overlooked by many, but I have a lot to offer if you take the time.
I don’t filter my pictures.
I don’t filter my words.
I don’t filter myself.
Because why would I filter something that doesn’t need filtering?
I don’t need filters, I need you to take the time to understand me.
