At 12, my mother told me
that going to sleep with make-up still on
would take two weeks off your life.
I know she meant
that I would wrinkle prematurely
and look like my grandmother in my senior pictures
but I still don't wash my face
before I get into bed.
By my estimation, I've got about three days left

“Crazy people are considered mad by the rest of the society only because their intelligence isn't understood.”

I feel a sadness in this poem that maybe many might not feel. The way this person just accepts death willingly at such a young age because she's overly self-conscious of her image is sad to me. Great poem nonetheless.
