Fake Nails (Through a Mirror)

Fake Nails (Through a Mirror)

A Poem by Breezie Kae
"

Written in 7th gradeish...middle school. XD

"

You walk with your head up high,

with your stick-thin body

and your cheap hair-dye.

As long as you have your

designer purse and

Hollister skirt, it’s all fine.

 

All the girls, yeah they want to be you,

and all the guys, they want to be with you.

 

Well here’s the thing, Little-Miss-Everything,

in your heart, you’ve got nothing.

Well I guess I’ll give you one thing,

I guess you are good for something.

 

You’re just good for mini-skirts

and high heels,

flipping your blonde hair back.

You’re just good lip-gloss

and fake nails,

batting your faux eyelashes.

Well aren’t you looking pretty good,

living your life through a mirror?

 

Yeah “Material Girl,"

and “Barbie Girl,” ‘hun,'

now that’s your ‘theme-song.’

Cause you’re made of plastic, girl,

you don't have anything

that money can’t buy.

 

I don’t care that you’re made of money,

I don’t care about your brand new honey.

 

Well here’s the thing, Little-Miss-Everything,

in your heart, you’ve got nothing.

Well I guess I’ll give you one thing,

I guess you are good for something.

 

You’re just good for mini-skirts

and high heels,

flipping your blonde hair back.

You’re just good lip-gloss

and fake nails,

batting your faux eyelashes.

Well aren’t you looking pretty good,

living your life through a mirror?


Well I guess that I just

can’t compare.

But if this is what it means,

then I don’t care.

 

I don’t care,

I don’t care.

 

Because I’d rather just be real,

than live my life through a mirror.

Man, this is so perfect for the auspicious, typical snotty little mean girl. I mean, I know quite a few of those, and let me tell you, you hit the nail right on the head. And I seriously love the last two lines: "Because I'd rather just be real Than live my life through a mirror." The repition of this girl living her live through a mirror is so symbolic and deep. This is really great. And the best part of it? I hate when people that aren't our age try and construct the "mean girls" in their stories...because, they just can't get it right, can they? You have to live it to know it, and that's definetly the case with you. Great. Very good. They sound very lyrical, lol...sounds like something Avril Lavigne would sing, since she hates all those mean girls and everything. Or Pink.

Good job!

This one definitely has a lot of potential and personally I loved your lyrics and your attitude and style of writing it. You have hit the spot in the stanza:

You're just good for mini-skirts
And high heels
Flipping your blonde hair back.
You're just good lip-gloss
And fake nails
Batting your faux eyelashes.
Well aren't you looking pretty good
Living your life through a mirror?

My salute to you!!

This is great! I can imagine someone like Pink or Avril Lavigne singing this...(I hope you don't mind that!)..or even someone like Kelly Clarkson. This has an excellent rythm and would make a really catchy song!

this looks like it could be a song. In fact, anyone reading this- if you are the musical type write a tune for this and make it a song. post it on youtube or something.

this is a very good poem on the pressures of being a woman. And it's also sad that it's coming a 14 year old girl as yourself already feeling the pressures of what one should look like. Young girls and teens should not be able to go through this but unfortunate we live in the "Mean Girls" era. this is a great poem on that subject. Congrats on the contest.

absolutely true....wow, i know this type, my school is crowded with them. Its a f*****g private school, yet theyre impossible not to pick out. There are girls a year below me that fit this exactly...they flip their hair, and they have that laugh..you know the high pitched fake one? yes, exact personification of the five of them...theres five..they make me shudder sometimes. It pays to have things that money cant buy, they make set you apart... i never did care much for labels...

(this is random, but somehow appplies...) i roomed with one of on a trip last year, and i come out of the shower one morning, to find them all blowdrying or straightening their hair...i, of course, go to my friends room...i come back because i hear five annoying girls screaming their little hearts out...you know what? they blew the circuit in my room because there were four blow dryers plugged into one circuit. Honestly, who screams when the power goes off...im sure the people at the front desk were pleased...

Well done! Fantastically vitriolic. I have known many people like this of both sexes. I myself am grateful to have things that money can't buy, and as I have learned, found them to be more important than material things. But the best thing perhaps is the fact that the things money can't buy often are the things they can't take away from you.

I wish I could tell you that those girls go away after high school, but as I enter the world of business...no...no they sure the hell don't. They get more obnoxious.

I really like this one. I think everyone knows a girl like this so everyone can relate. It particularly caught my attention because there's a girl that fits this description perfectly that is a good inspiration of angry poetry. I actually started the contest (Loathing Hatred) as an afterthougth of my poem about her, so you managed to fit what I had in mind of the winners perfectly.
Congratulations! =)
