I can make silly faces,

And I can make you smile.

My face is filtered, yes, and that hides the criticisms.

Now, come on, 'You're beautiful'

Oh really? 

That is what you seem to think, but you do not see what I see everyday.

Everyone has their days, where they feel self-assured,

Not everyone is something I learned.

One cannot simply take someone else's words and just instantly decide that they are enough.

Understand that it is unfair to call people conceited; They are confident in themselves, are you?

Gloominess is not acceptable, slap on a filter and make yourself happy.

How am I supposed to show my 'true self' if I am not enough?
