Art is beautiful
Art is inspiring
Art is memorable
But what does it mean when we use art to hide our beauty?
Is it still beautiful?
I am beautiful
I am inspiring
I am memorable
I am a piece of art waiting to be expressed
Not a blank canvas waiting to be painted
I filter my photos because I think they’re not unique enough
I put on makeup because I think I’m not pretty enough
I use a thesaurus because I think my words aren’t meaningful enough
We use these things to make ourselves believe we are a better person
But are we better because we reach society’s expectations?
Worse because we aren’t truly being ourselves?
Where’s the beauty in that?
