The Price Of Beauty
By Naomi Woods
Getting up every morning putting on a mask hiding your true beauty
Staring in the mirror not quite satisfied with your body
Constantly worried about what the world thinks
Sitting wondering how can I become this ideal beauty the world admires
Thinking maybe someday I’ll be just as beautiful as Beyonce’ or have the body of Nicki
But for now you feel out of place
You take this gift God your creator gave you and despise of it
You waste checks on makeup for this mask that you put on every morning
This mask makes you feel beautiful huh?
You hate your hair because you have “slave hair’ so you feel the need to hide it
Back shots to make you like Nicki
All of this?
All of this to be considered beautiful in the world’s eye
Question is do you feel beautiful?
Do you still feel like the person your heart says you are?
You think yes I’m all of that
But if you were to be stripped of all these things would you still feel “beautiful”
Society makes you ashamed of the true you so you create this artificial image
What about your true image
What about your true personality
But you hide them because feel like it’s your way of getting over and being accepted
Think about these things
There’s a difference between external confidence and TRUE confidence
True confidence is within your soul along with true beauty
Society doesn’t know the beauty of your soul
