Seeking acceptance through vanity
that you forget your own dignity,
for the sake of what? Approval?
Honey, this world is cruel
and you know it– you’re a jewel.
Yet, you let yourself be a fool
by letting yourself be consumed
in this modern day tune.
Singing of showing more skin
now your clothes are thin,
you follow the trends,
you gain new friends
will they be there until the end?
Because I can’t comprehend
the need of validation
through manipulated illusion
just to feel good about yourself
and just to feel accepted
But all I see are lonely kids
wanting to be wanted.
