The world is the stage and you're the actor playing the role of a perfect somebody. Live up to every-one's expectations. You must. Imperfection equals failure you know. In the world's eyes, if you can't be the perfect little movie star, you're worth as much as a grain of sand. So go on, what are you waiting for? Starve yourself, paint your face, pick up a lighter and grab the booze. You'll need it to make it through.

Smile.

Lights.
Camera.
[the mirror image of]
Perfection.

The author's comments:
Wrote this a while back... I was fairly inspired by the girls you see (in the high school setting especially) starving themselves and drinking/smoking/doing drugs to cope with their problems or just trying to get that "perfect" image.
