NaBloPoMo November 23

It’s Wednesday, and #OnWednesdaysWeHaiku. The prompt for today wonders if Photoshop makes me ashamed of my body. Wow, I could write a page an a half about what Photoshop can do to a woman’s self-esteem. But luckily for you, it’s time to Haiku.

An Instagram life
Full of Photoshopped fiction
And lacking verity.

And lacking verity
Truth must be concealed
All flaws are disguised.

All flaws are disguised
Authenticity obscured
An Instagram life.

  1. Yup. Those filters!
    The worst for me is real photos (not phone photos) and they’re of me, and I want to Photoshop myself but luckily I don’t!

  2. So true! Filtering out our flaws on instagram is common place. Are we still human?
