#ThereAreNoFilters....#OrAreThere?

Take a picture,

you see my #messyhair

tied up with a #hairtie

partially smoothed down with a #headband.

Somethings are #toomuchtrouble to take care of

And I would rather #gettoschool on time.

But look closer,

my eyes are #brightlikediamonds,

More like #diamondsintherough.

I could have become carbon but #nah,

I’m #toocool for that.

Mined from #hardship

I am stronger than the #graphitepencil I write with

So I am #incontrol.

See my sound,

my lips are #sored.

No, that is not lipstick; #Idontwearmakeup

I was literally #bornthisway

It is a gift, #dontmakemeregretit

Or any #words that come with it

#dontrainonmyparade

You won’t see my lips #turnblue

But if it’s #acidrain

#Youknow…

I would #die

Or at least #neverspeakagain.

Notice these scars?

#Ofcourse not.

The #photographer directs what the picture should look like

But the willing subjects #control #howtheylook

I am #photogenic

My subconscious is good at #hiding

What will make my pictures #lookbad

That’s why you see a #smile, not a #frown.

That’s why you see the #depth of these orbs, but not what #lurks in them.

That’s why you see the #mess, but not the #reason why it is so.

The filters are not #inthelens

#Myfilters #comefromwithin

#Yousee #whatIwantyoutosee

And what #Iwantyoutosee

Is only the #happyside of the #trueme.
