Living off likes Time passes As I wait for the page to load. I pick a filter to please the masses Worrying that they think I'm a toad. 10 likes 15 likes I hold my breath 5 more likes I let out the breath 10 moreEach one giving me another breath But why should I bother The endless minutes waiting Could have been spent with my brother We could have gone skating Or teamed up to scare our mother Does a filter capture personality A forced smile is nothing. The genuine smiles don't need a filter The ones from cheesy jokes Or when you first kissed her. The unplanned are the best One that had no time to capture The ones that make you give up your rest. A day at the beach Don't worry if the filter makes you fatterWe all laugh, feeling cute as a peach No camera would dare enter the water. A filter isn't needed for natures beauty The boy didn't see a filter when he called you a cutie. 70 likes I'm still breathing The day at the beach keeps me alive I no longer care what others are seeing All that matters is having a good time. 100 likes.
