Naturally Vain

Naturally Vain

A Poem by Fire&Ice

I sit here and I know,

That my appearance is lacking this day.

I stare absent mindedly ,

And then the light penetrates my head.

I should shave it.

Shave all the blonde hair.

Watch it fall to the floor,

Without a sound .

Maybe tonight,

I won't put in my retainer.

I mean, when I'm old and gray,

No one will be judging my teeth..

And that lovely skin cream,

That I lather all over my young, smooth legs.

I think I'll toss it.

One day they'll wrinkle anyway.

And better yet,

I'll cut my nails real short.

Remove all the paint.

And at these radical thoughts,

I stand and feel a shiver shake through me.

I know very well that I would,

Never attempt these things.

For I am slightly vain.

I just like to feel comfortable,

And being an eye sore,

Is not in my comfort zone.

But how ludicrous does it seem

That not one person left

Is completely natural
