Playing Dress-up

Is your pretty, pretty enough for this world?
Is your pretty, pretty enough for this world?

 

Pretty heels and pretty pearls
Is you pretty, pretty enough for this world?
When your heart grows weary of it’s hiding place
When love no longer abounds
How much is pretty worth?
Playing dress up until 30… we look like clowns
Nip, tuck, make that thang fat
How much is pretty worth if it hurts?
Pretty matters more than you do
Your costume more than your character
The charade more than she
Red lipstick stained lies
Confidence disappears just behinds her eyes
Never permeating her soul
Just a pretty pit
Void of true love
Void of anything
Pretty
Pretty empty.
Makeup, made up nothing but an illusion
Portraying who you pretend to be
Perpetrator.
Reach into your soul and pull out the pretty you forgot
The love that once graced your face before you were lost
Reach into the pretty that matters
Pretty heels and pretty pearls
Your pretty is never pretty enough for this world.
How much longer will we play dress up?
