Filters help disguise the pain you feel when you begin to see nothing but your flaws. You turn to the camera lens to hide what you feel is magnified. You do not see the ways people love you. A filter cannot dull your laughter, the way your eyes sparkle when you speak of passion. It cannot hide away your heartbreaks & you're mental gymnastics you practice every single day to help you stay sane. The vanity we have created over perfection is something we so rarely see within ourselves. We suffocate ourselves with poisoned wine of what colors you should use to hide your scars, you're imperfections. We seem to turn to the camera for the lies because our mirrors hold too harsh of a truth.
