The Girl Behind The Screen

To the girl behind the screen,

I wish I had your hair.

It shimmers in the sunlight,

Not a stray here nor there.


To the girl behind the screen,

I liked your post today.

In reality it made me green,

The feelings of envy won't go away.


To the girl behind the screen,

How did you get so fit?

I've tried many different remedies,

But I swear that this one is it!


To the girl behind the screen,

You liked my story today.

It made me feel a little bit better,

Knowing you liked what I had to say.


To the girl behind the screen.

Are you ever insecure?

I can't believe your confidence,

It seems so genuine and pure.


To the girl behind the screen.

I'm sorry that I'm jealous.

I repent with a few double taps,

then worry I'm being over zealous.


To the girl behind the screen.

I'll try not to feel resentment,

try to believe self love is true.

I'll work on my self image,

to see myself like I see you.


To the girl behind the screen.

I took some time to heal.

I stopped listening to my inner voice,

so I could recognize what is real.


To the girl behind the screen.

I finally met me,

I wanted to be just like you,

so much that I couldn't see...


That I am also the girl behind the screen.

The grasses greener on the other side.

Where I feel shame and sadness,

Others think that I feel pride.


I'm the girl behind the screen.

I have things to be grateful for.

I should be filled with satisfaction,

without always wanting more.


I'm the girl behind the screen.

I am exactly who I am.

I admire screen girls like me,

who have courage to say "I can."


I'm the girl behind the screen.

I hope I don't intimidate,

I never want you to feel small,

because that pain can resonate.


I'm the girl behind the screen,

For the record you are too.

So share your story truthfully,

because someone looks up to you.
