Poem

Skin Deep

you see a pretty face and envy them
for the beauty that you don't possess
but have you ever thought that
maybe you're just like all the rest
cause all you see is that pretty face
you never thought to look past it
and see beyond the surface
you might never know that she
looks at her reflection
and doesn't see what you see
and you might never know
that she cries herself to sleep
and all the while you envy her
for the beauty that you don't possess
but have you ever wondered
if she envied you
for the beauty that you don't see
or think that you possess
have you ever wondered
if she like you wanted to be
just like you...

This reminds me of a cartoon I once saw. Two women are sitting next to one another on a bus. One has straight hair, and the other has curly hair. Above their heads, they *both* are thinking, "I wish I had her hair!"

This post is the best, because just by reading it you know a lot about ur own voice! poetry tells you a lot more about a person than anything else

I think this is the most 'real' post. Your voice is a little sarcastic, funny, and also entertaining.
