Well… to no one in particular, but to everyone of us at the same time. We’ve all got something in us that makes us pathetic πŸ˜‰

Powder and make-up on her rosy cheeks,
Like a lone star in the night sky, she speaks.
Big dreams, bigger laughter, she smiles…
Unfriendly thoughts, her envious heart, she hides.

High heels and mini-skirts, she dances around.
Her gang of friends like to call mine a hound.
Cat-walking, she thinks she’s a model…
Nail polish and lipstick, she likes to cuddle.

She shrieks like a girl from a horror film
At a butterfly on her window sill.
She slams the door and runs away, she thinks it’s cool.
It’s a butterfly!* To the onlookers she’s nothing less than a fool.

Nails painted five colours, music playing loud
She doesn’t hear her mom speaking, that makes her proud.
Beads hanging off her ears, dresses the deepest pink.
She flips her hair, looks at yet another boy and winks.

Eyebrows pierced, trousers which look torn.
To be a superstar, she thinks she was born…
Too good to be born to an ordinary family,
And with me around, she’s never live happily.

A gelled fringe falling upon her face.
A bit of the ‘Better world’, she wants to taste.
Standing alone she poses for photographs
Dreaming of signing autographs.

“I should be a role model” she says,
“No tears should mar my face”…
I secretly hope she’d understand reality
As she nods at the camera with finality.

*Whoever the person who screams at a butterfly in this context has no sort of phobia what so ever towards them.
