Beauty-full?

Beauty is now calculated by pounds
how much do you weigh is cruel and sounds

a little out of the question
in this confession
i witness, i see

that Beauty
is now calculated by how much you make
is now calculated by how much you fake

do you suppose that this has a reason inside
is it all just a lie, or the truth something denied
do you suppose that i could be
something special, a beauty
if i was rich or if i was poor
if i was less or if i was more
one day
someday

I will be beautiful.

    Great write Stpehen! The pressure to conform to what a society thinks is beautiful seems to be the norm. I often find that its the unique things about a person that make me see their beauty. Bravo – mss3
