No Filter



behind the makeup and smile as big as her heart there is a girl

she is living in constant fear of the future

her biggest fear is failing

she feels helpless

but she has to try

she has to strive for more

all the hard work and determination will be worth it


now she is almost on her own

she isn’t sure if she will be able to do it

she isn’t ready to grow up just yet

all she thinks about is the past and future

but she needs to live in the present


she needs to spend more time with her family

play with little brothers

watch a movie with her dad

get coffee with her mom

if she doesn’t she will regret it


life is passing her by

before she knows it she will have her own family

theres nothing more she wants

just to cherish her life more

not take things for granted
