The Mask of This Generation

What are filters?

Filters are cover-ups, concealing the truth,

Concealing the true identity to which the entity does not wish to share.

They cover, so others do not see.

From press, to speech, to a selfie,

Filters restrict.

Filtering your mind might make you politically correct,

But is it correct to halt your mind?

Is it correct to speak to not offend others?

Without filters, one can be genuine.

A mind can be spoken, and thoughts can be shared.

People on social media can see the true picture,

The picture that should be out there,

The picture that shows you,

The real you,

The best you.
