Summary
Written By Carolin De Leon

Director / Director of Photography Emmanuel Hernandez

I have freed myself
From myself
Therefore you
Can never trap me

I have spent my entire life
Until this point
Defining what beauty is

If it was proper posture
A poised young lady
With manners
And a soft voice

All these external things
I used to define a reality
That is not mine

Endlessly
I tried to define something
That felt so foreign to me

But finally
I surrendered

Beauty is truth
Beauty is honesty

Finally

I have given myself
Everything that I deserve

Finally 
I have surrendered to myself
