The Perfect Image Poem by Katherine Perry

The Perfect Image

Rating: 5.0
 


Mirror mirror on the wall
Who's the fairest of them all
An image of what makes us feel real
Coming from an inner self-insecurity
secretly sealed

All in search of the fountain of youth
From creams, botox, surgerys and more
But it be nothing but a shallow image
thats used
In hope that others will adore

But there is no beautifier of complexion
more than a face that can scatter joy
around
For one who sees love for humanity
Who we are and who we can be
That is where true beauty can be found

We have developed through influence alone
In our workplace and in our homes
A beauty so valued but meaningless
An image that should be condoned

So living in the world with an image of
prefered beauty is what we see
A majority public vote where influence
holds the key
And that is what we look at
And compare each other to that
Then use it to decide what we want to be

The more we are influenced by the majority view
The harder it is to ignore it
For it is everywhere you go
In the stores and in your home
It's advertised and sold
It's everywhere you roam

Sad to say, but we are all to blame
Because we are so heavily influenced by what
others think and say
It's not admited, but it's secretly driving
women insane
And some let it destroy their life, all from
the influence of decay!

Mirror, mirror on the wall you reflect my face and let me see sadness or happiness is reflected. Very wonderful composition with nice wording. Nice job on sharing.

True..tis seconds updates.....this moments approval of my being..through the counts of LIKES...is a shameful addiction.....i agree thoroughly....we are much influenced by what others think of us rather what we feel for our selves.......running down to zero self esteem........a shattering truth.Kudos! !
