Your Not Perfect

Every day you go through the same routine,
First you take a shower,
Then, Ya put your face on,
That usually takes for hours,
Fix your hair,
Just about three times a day,
You go to school,
Everything has to be your own way,
All the girls think you’re so cool,
But here’s something they don’t know about you.

I see your giggles,
When you see the articles,
Of other people,
But we’re all from the same circle,
You roll your eyes,
But you don’t see,
That you are living with a bunch of dirty lies,
You wear a disguise,
You act like a normal teen,
But when you go home,
You start to scream,
And try to seek help,
But you are so mean,
You make everything a scene

You’re not perfect,
You’ll never be,
I wish they’d just see,
That you’re a fake,
Just looking at your preppiness,
Makes me ache,
You blame others,
For you mistakes,
And that is something that really bothers,
you’re not perfect,
Can’t they see?
That’s what you’ll never be.

What would happen if everything changed,
What if all your friends rearranged,
Would you’re life be ok,
Or would you be afraid?
Looks like your life would be small,
If you didn’t have your friends,
Looks like you’re not perfect after all.
