Prettiest Lies

“It’s what’s on the inside that counts.”
I said as I brush my hair.
“I’m funny, sweet, and smart.”
I said as I applied eyeliner.
“I have a great personality.”
I said as I put on my heels.
“I’m confident and brave.”
I said as I inspect my nails.
“It’s what’s on the inside that counts.”
I repeat as I avert my eyes
Gorgeous on the outside, empty inside
Repeating once again
Society’s prettiest lies
