Sized Wrong - Poem by Dylan Rivera

Thin lies get distorted by a perception of deception.
You have been fooled.
Loving yourself was never blonde and ambitious.
Never bold and likable.
Never superficial, toothy,
or tanned by cancerous beauty.
Never,
was it beautiful.
Cut here, replace there, and smile through vacant stares
of the amateur painter.
Higher cheekbones will hide the waves of the river.
Ultimately, killing all life.
Curing flaws from outside pressures, is of the essence.
Longer legs
will walk you
into acceptance.
Through knots of irreverent photographs.
While fake hair will make a voluminous star;
Depending on the moon.
The sun
has left no mercy.
Why are we fooled by this barbaric liturgy?
We've lost the fairy in the tale.
When through time,
Mona Lisa is still the most beautiful girl in the world.
