Beauty Vs. Brains
Beauty or brains?
A question that seems to be
Aimed at the young girls in our society.
Why must a little girl be
Criticized if she
Chooses to accentuate her looks
By contouring her mind?
Why should her choice of concealer
Conceal her desire to learn?
Who says that because she can differentiate,
We must differentiate her from the pageant contestants?
Is there a side effect where the mascara she uses seals her eyes shut
So that she cannot read the lines of a book?
Where is it written that eye shadow must shadow her thoughts on politics?
