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!

Ha! I love this!!!Because for one, in general these were some nice lyrics and two, because it is so true!!!I mean, At school, half of the girls are like little plastic barbies and I hate it. Because I don't see any individuality at all! I just see a bunch of girls that are following the fashion magazines, thinking it's the f*****g bible! Excuse my language but I'm just getting tired of it. All they care about is being beautiful, and for the future I feel so sorry for them because other than their beauty, most of the time. there's nothing there. I mean, some of the girls like that I know, they're not smart at all and it seems like they don't have any ambition. Plus I can't see why they have so much followers.Because in the inside, there's really nothing there.

Well anyways, I really loved these lyrics.It had some good points in this and it was well-written. Nice job!!
