Makeup & Me, A Poem

Growing up I was a princess

As a teenager, I need to look and act like one

If I don't then boys won't like me

And then I'll be done


Society puts so much pressure

On young girls

Forcing the 1950's mindset of always dressing up

Never complete without makeup and pearls


If I look all dolled up,

It's to impress a boy

If I dress down

It will my honor I destroy


As a swipe the mascara wand

Across My Lashes 

All Of Those Comments

Burn Away Like Acid


A Tube Glides On My Lips

Coating Red On My Pout

A Smirk Dances Across My Face

Ignoring What All The Fuss Is About


I only want to look good

For only one purpose

That purpose is me

Instilling confidence in a future boss and businessperson
