Shallow Poem by Marcquiese Burrell

I listen to the words people say
Not a minute goes by in the day
where I think, the lonely will always be lonely
because they live their lives in a world of fantasy

The media created this concept and on
the TV, Internet, Magazines
falsified what beauty is
which only lies beneath
because as time pass each one of us by
what we came to know as beauty fades
society has welcomed in our insecurities
where the physical appearance over a persons heart
is of utmost importance than getting to know them
even more disturbing is the baring of assets
that sometimes is the determining factor of ones attraction
that will only have those of the judging panel visually satisfied

I may not look like a super model,
have skin so perfect
and a body that's worth it
and I am not interested in having status,
a clientele of one night contenders
just to keep a profile
to win uncoveted popularity
that kind of thing never mattered to me
