Numb to the touch
Nothing appears to be real
Pressured by a society
Telling her
What she’s authorized
To feel

An artificial smile
To deceive
She illustrates a happiness
Which others yearn
To see

Her existence
Solely complying
With what
She believes
To be expected

Her life
An act
Which criticisms
Have directed
