Flaws of the skin,
Flaws from within
Lost and damaged
Working hard to repair a mental image.
You did not wake up like this
You're currently looking in the mirror at a far cry from what it is.
Make up covering your invisible bruises.
Your beautiful natural essence disappears
With every stroke of a brush
More and more your heart fills with disgust
How can you live without it.
You're not the same without it,
You look totally different without it.
But with it, you're "perfect "
You better work it.
And you let them know you woke up like this.
Nothing comes easy beauty takes pain, we have time to grow we are just "kids"
But we're growing up so fast
Memories will not last but for the moment you want to be
A word that should have never gained edge
Pushing mental capacities of what it means to be
A beautiful girl and settling for pretty.
Not desiring what's real no one has ever seen the natural girl she's empty
To the heart she's lost in a world with no attachments to what she was
Because all that matter is in your eyes she's
A word that's lost its meaning
Accepting death because you know the risk of putting on a thin pair of tights and a tank top clogging your pore with 6 pounds of make up
In 15 degree weather.
But what makes it better is
she's FLAWLESS .
A mental state she woke up like this
No going back to when we were kids
But fast forwarding to adulthood
Where life is expected to be good and
Where you're skin is defeated, your health is depleted
From all the parties every night
Coming home faded and sky high
Because it's ok to do it every night
As long as you have time to wake up in the morning and do it all over again.
Beauty really should come from within
The most beautiful person
Is the one with a heart of gold
With brains beyond society's hold.
True beauty is the desire to be yourself
When everyone is pressing for you to conform and be someone else.
You have bumps and scars on your face.
Freckles and smile lines you can't erase.
It's ok you're safe.
You make it through the day.
You are great and
