Perfect

by Amber
(Alabama)

we hide behind glossy smiles
and fake laughter
but no one has really worn our shoes for a mile
behind the bedroom door
we look into the mirror and cry
we are girls who believe their lies
skinny = pretty they say
but I want to ask:
how come I feel anything but pretty today?
