Am I Pretty?

The prettiest cardigan in my wardrobe
Will cover for all the scars and cuts
That contain hours of pain and hatred
A stroke of black mascara through my eye lashes
Will hide the look of insecurity in my eyes.
An extra dab of concealer
Will conceal so many sleepless nights.
A smear of red lipstick
Will fill all the cracks
On my trembling lips.
And a dab of purple paint
Will take away the ugly dullness
Of my fragile nails.
A thick layer of foundation and blush
Will repplace the paleness of my face.
And a black skinny jeans will compliment
My new thigh gap.
No one will know, I thought
Let them think that I am perfect
And let them think that I am pretty.

Am I pretty now?

So very beautiful as always. I love the detail use and the deep meaning of every word, it's like reading between the lines. It was really poetic, strong and very true. I think the end was pretty great you shouldn't worry about it ^_^ And also, just so you know you are Pretty :D :P We all are it's our nature as girls ;) It doesn't matter what colour is your hair or your eye, how small tall, fat or skinny. The beauty in every girl is its pure and natural touch of prettiness,  that special thing that gives every girl its own and unique beautiful look. Once again, great job on this. Keep it up ^_^ thanks a lot for sharing this 5 stars of course :D
