Looks - Poem by La Tonya Davis

These days everyone is searching for the fountain of youth,
tring to look young.But in doing so, they pile on makeup and such,
to cover up, when all the process over time makes it worse.

Over the years; the world is so shallow,
that we as females only take what we allow.
Why can't the trend become something simple.
Then when you think about it, our time here will be ample.

This world overall is based on the outside,
not what makes up that person on the inside.
The majority of the world is focused on the deadly sins,
someone's always concentrating on the outer and never the beauty within.

The rareaty is for someone to judge you on the inside worth,
not on your looks, like some jerk.
The new show called Nip/Tuck, all these females going under the knife,
to fix impurities to become someone else, a little advice I was told,
'Correct your inner self; make it beautiful, so you'll have a beautiful soul, and it'll shine outer.
