Needed but not necessary
A filter was needed
Although not neccessary
I just masked the look that screamed "I have been defeated"
On my knees saying a "Hail Mary"
Begging God to let this only be temporary
Under my eyes are fully packed cargo
Turning me into a blind visionary
I have 100 strands of wisdom in my hair
& smudged mascara from the day before
TRUST ME The filter was needed
I could pass for twenty four
Instead of the scream of defeated
It looks more like I've succeeded.
The filter hides the flaws
Turning the soon to be once was on pause.
I still embrace the natural beauty I was given
Flaws perfectly made with precision
Going from blind visionary
To needing no supervision with my uncollided collisions
I am anything but temporary
The filter was needed
Although not neccessary!
