White teeth
violet eyes
Red lips
Bright Smiles

Rouged cheeks
Tan skin
Flat stomachs
So thin

Add more sparkles
Add more rouge
Must be thinner
No more food

Painted Beauty
Is all they see
But do I want
That to be me?

I wrote this poem one day while thinking about how this world is tainted with fake beauty instead of true beauty

I like the message of this poem. I do believe that the world has a false Idea of beauty.
