VALIDATION

4sara-herranz-ilustracion-makamo

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.
