messed up dreams in my mind
charred, black soul in my body
catastrophic symphonies in my heart

be yourself, you are one of a kind

Click me a pretty selfie, Instagram
Lie to me yet again
Comfort me in your arms, Instagram
Assure me, I am not that plain
Tell me that the world loves me, Instagram
Tell me that I am not alone
Remind me to post my existence, Instagram
What if my friends think I am somewhere on my own?
Make me beautiful, Instagram
Remove all my imperfections
Let people see the fake me, Instagram
Nobody can know my corrections
Don’t leave me alone, Instagram
I am insecure of my flaws
Make me popular, Instagram
I can’t go back to where I was
Try to fit me in, Instagram
I can’t be ridiculed anymore
I can’t face my true self, Instagram
So, please put a filter on me once more.
Note: I have nothing against Instagram. This is just my own opinions. I want people to be who they are and not put a filter on themselves. That's it.

    I love the way you wrote this; it brings an important message. I use Instagram, but I don't use it often; only to check up on friends. Great piece with a strong message!

    Awesome, as always! I can particularly relate to this. All my friends are on Instagram and they force me to join too! They get particularly pissed when I refuse though. I wish they could read this... amazing job! Keep writing:)
