Pressure

There's pressure everywhere.

In magazines

On Television

From my peers

Videos

In movies

Manipulating me into someone I'm not

Do I really have to be her to make it to the top?

All that make-up and weave girl please

Trying to fulfill someone else's needs

Is this really reality ?

Everyone walking around like an army

Same hair, clothes, shoes, even skin

Hold on, stop doesn't real beauty reside within?

Well I'm not going to sit around and let my own life be controlled

I don't need to hide

Or shade myself with covers

Because I'm an individual

Diverse any other

Not her

Not him

Not they

Not she

Simply me!
