Watch the poem here!

“If you think it’s cool or edgy to hate selfies, it’s not cool, it just means you’re uneasy about the fact that girls believe they are beautiful.”

This is how two young women begin their “Ode to the Selfie.” In under two minutes, poets Megan Falley and Olivia Gatwood manage to explain why taking selfies can be an exquisitely empowering act.

Together, the feminists beautifully describe the features a woman might want to share with the world in the form of a selfie.

“Today your hair was a river down your back,” Gatwood says. “Today your freckles were sprinkles on ice cream,” Falley adds after.

They compare a selfie to an artistic masterpiece. “Today your iPhone was the Louvre and you were the Mona Lisa,” they say together.
