Makeup

Oh my goodness! One of my friends wrote an amazing poem for our American Lit class! Its not my work, but I love it! And she said I could share it with you, world :3

You
You are beautiful.
Beautiful with your makeup.
Makeup hides your imperfections.
Imperfections that need correction.
Correction makes you better.
Better than before.
Before you put makeup on.
On top of your imperfect face.
Face the facts, it's true.
True that you shouldn't return.
Return to the real face in the mirror.
Mirror your society.
Society is good, and you know that you should,
Should hid your true self to be someone else.
Else you should learn to be yourself.
Yourself is not anything good.
Good thing you've kept your makeup on.
On top of your naturally grotesque appearance.
Appearance is everything.
Everything repugnant about you should be hidden.
Hidden away so no ine can see.
See the ugliness that is you.
