Society Sucks

Society Sucks

A Poem by Secret Lullaby

Little girls trying to be perfect.

But ask yourself if its really worth it.

Dyeing your hair and coloring your face,

Only covers up what's at the base,

Of your heart and that's what matters.

So stop now before your soul shatters.

We all know that this world is tough.

But when are we going to say that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Children are dying.

And families are cry.

Because society says that if you're not perfect

Than you're not worth it.

Author's Note

Secret Lullaby
Children, Teens, Young Adults.....we ALL have wanted to fit in. But when did it become "cool" to be just like everyone else??
Those mean girls? The jocks? To me they are the losers. But those kids that get pushed into the background just because they dont follow along with everyone else....THEY are the cool one. Because they haven't lost touch with their originality.

This is perfection. I think this is my new favorite poem.
Society has this image of beauty painted into everyone's mind, but what most people don't realize is that beauty is not always something that can be seen; but felt. I love the way this poem really captures that message. It was beautifully written and wonderful to read. Keep it up :)

I like it, we don't have to wear make-up to look beauty. Everyone has beauty, the real beauty lives somewhere inside you.

Good work; society is certainly in a strange place mentally right now. One can only hope that we will all change for the better, but the cynical side of me doesn't think so.

at a young aged it's hard to understand that happiness is a state of mind, for which anyone can find!
I think you've put this together very well

It's been awhile since I was in high school and I hated it. I definitely wasn't one of the "cool" kids. I was more of a loner. In a lot of ways I still am. Good poem S.L. Keep writing.
