ARE YOU DOING IT FOR YOU? (A POEM)

You wake up early in the morning spend 2 hours getting dressed

You make sure everything is perfect to the tee, you want to impress

Your eye lashes so long that you’re always blinking

“What can I do better” you are always thinking

Your heels are 5 inches and walking is a chore

Still not tall enough you want an inch more

You spend hours in the salon to get the perfect hair

Hoping that as you walk everyone would stare

You got your nails done long it’s kind of hard to type

You got your toes done too although they don’t see much light

You can’t help eating but soon your finger’s down your throat

You want to be a size 4 and that seems like your only hope

You want the perfect body you want to be tone

You make a trip to the doctor to get some silicone

You use creams and soaps just to change your complextion

Very soon you look in the mirror and don’t recognize the reflection

Please don’t be confused by the message in this all

There is nothing wrong with looking pretty as a doll

But just know your limits you can set the bar

Don’t over do it don’t go too far

Whenever someone wants you to change and it makes you feel blue

Ask yourself ARE YOU DOING IT FOR YOU?

Just a side note people we always want to be the best person we can be in every way.  None of us are perfect and that is a fact.  In your quest to be better just don’t do anything that hurts you or you don’t want to do. The truth is whoever we are trying to impress does not care about us if looks are all that matter to them.  Try and surround yourself with people who want to be around you for YOU.
