Nails done, hair done, and lip gloss on 

This is how the world views me as I step out of the house, 

However, this 

This is not me, this is not how I typically look when I am alone, 

The real me is the girl in the gym,

Boxing gloves on, 

Sweat dripping down my body, 

Wrestling gear on,

Black eyes,

Mat burn,

Jammed fingers,

Cuts covering my hands from the deadlift bar,

These, these are the things that make me, me

This is how i look 

This is me 

No filter needed 

Because hard work is beautiful 

Hard work is me 

This is me
