A picture's worth a thousand words,
But what of that are lies?
To me, I don't like pictures, as they hide you in disguise,
For what am I, to tell you, who I am?
You'd form different opinions than I, over the same person.
I'm a girl who likes to write, but doesn't know what about,
Never really finishes the long stories,
I'm a packrat, I keep adding things to my collection,
But I ain't ever organized, so damn messy,
I sometimes cuss when I'm angry, most of the time, no,
Get straight A's to go where I wanna go,
I love this type of website,
Where no one knows me,
Yet when they read my poems they learn my back story,
I'm not popular, I never really was,
I'm on the swim team, love the water just cuz',
But ya wouldn't know any of this, from looking at a photo,
Where I hide my true feelings, shape my face like a mask,
What spell you under? Look underneath the layers,
There, you see? You're making progress.
I know this poem is long, it's built out like a song,
I'm listening to 80's cuz it's damn good music,
Please, I'm asking, I wanna go to college,
But applying to all scholarships just ain't eas-y,
But you wouldn't guess this from just looking at me,
from a photograph, or a picture on the wall,
even talking, I'm not the kind to give that up,
unless ya know where to look.
There is no filter on my mouth,
Which is why I mostly shut it,
I mean almost every word I say,
I'm blunt, say it how it is, if ya don't like it,
Boy I've lost friends that way,
I have 4 meals a day, never wear makeup,
used to be able to beat the boys up,
grew up with boys all round, I was the only girl,
I don't like skirts, or high heels, or low shirts,
But ya wouldn't know that if ya looked at me,
Through a photograph, a picture, that one moment in time,
sure, it's good to remenisce with, when ya forget your memories,
when ya say everything is fine.
But I don't do snapchat, or do selfies of me,
I'm not that self observed, or shallow,
But before you start guessing or judging me,
You should see how much you're opinions really worth.
This is who I am, no filter, no nonsense,
I'm blunt, I say it loud and proud,
If ya don't like it, forget it, just walk straight away,
NO Filter means this is crazy loud.
