9 (who?)
The world is dark and scary in this age
A time when we can't even be ourselves
Sometimes it makes me sick and weary
Just hearing about the stories and tales

What happened to when we were fine
Just being the way we were born
Now every time we turn around,
We aren't pretty enough, perfect enough
Don't have the body they say we need
We don't look like the faked up models
That they display on every image
That confronts our face daily.

Why can't we just live for people
Not for the physical pleasures
And pleasing sights of the eye
These things shall pass away
What will your "looks" be
When we reach for fire and paradise.

Please can't we just let ourselves be
I just don't understand how we choose this
In so dark a world, where our created images
Of women and men are impossible to match
Without resorting to such things.

I believe that the person is what matters
And not what they appear or what they dress
I would rather speak to the mind and soul
Than to please the eyes of the corrupt heart.
I've been hearing more and more about "cosmetic" surgery. This sort of thing sickens me, and shows me just how dark the world we live in is. Why can't people just learn to live as the perfect creations God made us? Yes, I believe that we should remain healthy, and exercise and diet etc, but come on. Surgery? Just for the sake of appearing younger or the worlds veiw of "sexier"?

yeah... I wrote this after seeing parts of a show my sister was watching on TV, and I just couldn't believe what people did to themselves.

This is very true my friend! I think it is too!
=) very well done!
meh, let them do what they want to mar their bodies. as long as you dont let it get to you when and if people say things.

i think its self concious. self concious people will think people say things when they really dont and if they do say somthing.. they dont take it well.

i just shrug it off. if sombody says somthing, i laugh in their face. maybe my mug aint the best in the world, but theres no way they are getting me under a knife
