Society Am I Pretty Yet?


5 years old
Pink ribbon, silk ribbon,
Streaming through my tightened hair,
Pigtails, toothless smile;
Society am I pretty yet?
10 years old
Ponytails, bobby pins,
Tantrums, thinking life's not fair,
Chubby thighs, crooked smile;
Society am I pretty yet?
13 years old
Straight hair, lip gloss,
Long strands of hair, changes,
Invisible tears, broken smile;
Society am I pretty yet?
15 years old
Messy bun, chapped lips,
Longer nights and nothing going right,
Lost mind, fake smile;
Society am I pretty yet?
