"i am weird"


I put on layers of makeup.
With eye liner to top it off.
I burn my hair to straighten it.
And I put baggy clothes on.

I wear contact lenses to see.
Sometimes I don’t eat.
I guess I am just not happy with me.
I wonder what they see.

I listen to weird music,
Just to gain approval.
I am only myself with a few.
The rest of the time I barely got through.

At night I take it all off.
I do my workout routine.
I scrub of the layers of makeup.
Then I look in the mirror and wonder what they see

This has a really strong message and idea but I feel like it could have slightly better flow. Usually keeping the syllabal count in the lines around the same number will establish this. But I did really enjoy how deep this was and it seems as if its very personal to you. Keep Writing!
