Turning Baby Girls Into Barbie Dolls


plastic fantastic
raised to match
barbie doll expectations
impossible waist lines

poor little girls
each unique personalities
now she never knew
who she was
another body beautiful

with make up looks
to burn being everything
she is posed to be

except talent incarnate
sold for an image
another piece of pie

untasted uneaten spoiling
until emptiness swallows
her soul sucked mirror images

    Yes I have two daughters who are delightfully learning to think and reason as all adults should; and are free to become whoever they desire to be. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
