Oh, To Be Pretty

What I really wish to be,
Fair skinned,a perfect beauty,
Big,colorful eyes,
Plump,round lips from which to passionately sigh,
A nose, pointed yet blunt,
To smell all the scent,
Of my pretty perfume.

I know that I am beautiful, just not fully blooomed,
But when I am finished,and on my deathbed lay,
I'll think how petty in my youth was I,
For thinking of only the exterior,
And leaving bare a promising interior.

The author's comments:
Looking at myself in the mirror, I thought how
alot of girls (including me) put themselves down, and sometimes only focus on the oustside.
It's important to focus on how you are on the inside. What I mean by this is focus on being loving,gracious,strong,and wise. Although, there is nothing wrong with doing your best to look nice.
