The real me

Sun, 01/04/2015 - 23:45 -- didiv88

Without a filter you see my flaws

I’m not the most beautiful girl in the world

But I’m the best version of me

Behind the filters you see the real me

Not who they want me to be

Look into my eyes and you will really see  

Erase the filters all these color effects

See the look in my eyes?

Life has knocked me down and I’ve risen again and again

 You can see my tired eyes of the tears I have shed

But when you look at my smile you see the hope

A smile that appears to make days great for everyone

Then you hear my laughter

Because sometimes it’s better to laugh than cry

A laugh that makes life worth living

If I didn’t hide my stomach you would really know

I lost myself and let myself go

But if you could really see then you’d know

I’m finding myself and looking better for myself

To love others you must love yourself  

If you could see into my mind you’d know me

The thoughts of a daughter, a sister, a student and a worker

Someone who wants to achieve success to make her mother proud

Who has so many dreams and aspirations she needs all the clouds in the sky
