We live in a world of fakeness,
with poisioned minds;
and plastic bodies;
where we become so numb;
that we no longer
feel,
You laugh; I smile;
though I'm crying within,
the plastic clones turn
us into something we hate,
They lead; we follow;
with discouraged faces;
we are the shadows of the plastic army,
In the darkness there is light;
the fakeness turns bright,
Our hearts are whole,
we are strong,
for you and I are no longer a plastic
doll,
filled with fakeness and shallow
like that
Barbie.

I love Barbie! I play with her all of the time! She is pretty and fun and we go on adventures together! I didn't know she had an army though! Wow!

I apply to this poem. However, I do agree with it. It did insult me a little, though. But it was nice. ;)

i would only change the last few lines, starting from "i are no longer plastic" heres how i think it would be better. no longer numbed, no longer a plastic army, unlike the head leader, barbie. (i came up with that on a dime, so if you have a problem with that, :(.

I don't really like it. I mean, it's apparent that you gave a fantastic effort. Overall, good job. It could just use a little work. :]
