Beauty On Social Media And How It Affects Us "Less Than Fortunate".

Emee.chan is not perfect, but at least she's not a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy...

They ingrained it in our brains to be a copy of a copy of a copy, instead of being an original masterpiece. 'Cause that's what we all are, no matter what we look like.

Society's "Beauty Queens"

I see her around, walking in those high heels
And I can't help but wonder how
Those feet of hers feel.

She's an ideal girl, with her long hair and fake lashes.
She made the concept of natural beauty
Burn to ashes.

She has more followers and likes on her 'gram than I do.
I ask myself day and night
"Oh, why can't I be just like her?!"

Why can't I be as pretty as her,
Have an hourglass figure
That makes heads turn?

Why can't I be loved and adored just like she is,
Be famous and talked about,
Word spreading to the heaven above?

No matter how hard I try,
No matter how much makeup I put on,
No matter how provocative my clothes are
It didn't really get me that far.

I get a few follows and likes here and there,
DM's are rare,
While she gets it all so effortlessly
That it's really not fair!

But is it normal to be obsessed
With "popularity" on social media so much?
To strive to be these "beauty queens" that society
Seems to adore so much?

What about our brains and personality,
Our ambitions and goals,
Our morals and individuality?

I keep asking myself these same questions for years,
Why can't beauty queens be
Brainiacs instead of airheads?
