Faces only

It's not my natural look
It's not a natural compliment
It's not my beauty
It's only a job well done

Skin deep they say
Skinny is too mainstream
Silky smooth is gorgeous
Seeing me isn't knowing

I am not what you see
I am not the words I say
I am not a doll to look at
I am not a magazine

We are only human
We are people
We are artists
We are always disrespected

Too much
Too little
Too tall
Too short
Too small
Too wide

Why not just say it?
Why act so nice?
Why fake a smile?
Why tolerate critics?
