We Don't All Need To Be The Same

We Don't All Need To Be The Same

A Poem by StarSandwich

Maybe we should take a step back, time to stop looking at the things we lack.
Confidence and beauty, massive tits and a cracking booty. 
Girls today are not the same, always looking at things to blame.
I'm to thin or I'm to fat, always look at things like that.
Long hair and a pale complexion, always looks like such perfection.
A Pretty blonde with big blue eyes, not many people know how hard she tries.
She so thin with a perfect smile, one which has been miss placed for awhile.
Shes so fake, from her looks to all the way to the choices shes make.
Short dark hair and thick black make up, moaning about the size of her bra cup.
Scares on her wrists, always the first to throw her fist.
Loose clothes from the weight shes lost, all the guys shes tossed.
A consent reminder of the path she has chosen, how her core is now frozen.
Leave her alone for a day she wishes, they only laugh when she finished her dishes.
A consent reminder of how shes getting wider, maybe her parents should just hide her.
She finds comfort in her food, a little music she uses to kill the mood.
Shes not fat but she feels that way, because of the words they always say.
Maybe its time to stop looking at things to blame.
You are perfect in your own way we don't all need to be the same.

This is so true unfortunately, and the sad part is the beauty industry makes money off your insecurities. I went into beauty school I thought I was doing it to make people feel good and confident and a lot of people see it that way when they work in it. Though I couldn't help but feel fake. Actually since reading this I now realize why I hated that job and profession... I was at school for 5 months the course was about 6 moths long I got really sick due to stress and panicking and some more health issues. I realizes the reason I was stressed and panicking was because I didn't want to be there.i didn't know why but now I do. Most people love the creative side (I did) and making people happy but my job was mostly sales and I realized I'm selling products based on someone's insecurities low self esteem due to the fact that that industry and the world say we are beautiful if our skin is clear our makeup done correctly and so on. Sure I was a skin care specialist and its about the bodies health and balance. There are stories about life saving and changing events in salons and spas, it'd not bad and in fact it makes people feel great. That's the brilliant and beautiful side of if but the fact that if someone feels they need the newest line of makeup, hair style etc etc to feel like that belong, that hurts me too much.

I love people they are beautiful inside a d out. People need to stop judging smile and be happy.

However that is not to say dont take care of ones self just stay healthy and happy as to who you are and then maybe the world will start to understand its not what people see on the shell that really matters.

That you for writing this :)

Ok.... This is by far the best piece of writing I've ever read. The message, the way you conveyed the message is just amazing. Love the 2nd line! Loved the whole poem.
