a word that has seemingly become replaced by
Perfection is unrealistic


to the internal beauty that lay beneath

the pounds of makeup and fake tan

Black eye-lines,
fake hair,
90 pounds

of a cover girl


foreshadows of an emerging yearn for
in modern day society
the struggle to find inner

All woman are hypnotized
we are medias toys

They play with our minds

we are hurt

They play with our hearts

they become broken

Some believe perfection=satisfaction
will our hunger for flawlessness
external acceptance end?

We ARE perfect
We ARE beautiful
We ARE Independent

So why settle for being flawless when you can stride for accomplishment and pride
Accept flaws, aim for success not perfection.
