The Truth in all the Lies

Location

Behind the filter is where it lies

In black and white is where is hides

When we think we shouldn't shine

This is the truth in all the lies

 

I hide the flaws that do not show

Crop the edges to make it grow

Take the picture to not be shown

This is the truth in all the lies

 

Without make-up I wear shame

With make-up I wear a mask

Society has taken our innocence

This is the truth in all the lies

 

To be seen I must hide

In the tilt, the filters, the texture, the tone

Details are the first to go

This is the truth in all the lies

 

I'm not perfect

No one is

I still smile, laugh, and live an amazing life

This is the thruth in all the lies
