A poem for women

Popeye 

Mirror on the wall
why are you taking
up her time?,
You got her in the mirror,
putting make up on her mind,
Putting on that make up
only wastes precious time
Cause it's not about her face,
It's more about what's in her mind,
But our sad shallow world,
has her working overtime,

30 minutes til an hour,
so she can try to find perfection,
But only if she knew,
their's little need for correction,
And it's sadder
that Beauty companies
are rich because of this,

Girls with low self esteem
spending millions to achieve,
To achieve a look
that they already possess,
But it's society's fault
that their's so much stress,

Cause it makes them think
that they need makeup to
believe,
but the truth is
It's only used to deceive,
cause it's a temporally fix,
inside they will still bleed,

The world can be
so superficial at times,
That's the main reason
they're trying to make
us all blind,

By making us think
that beauty
is all that really matters,
But it's the true confidence inside,
Which makeup only shatters,

Putting make up on,
only makes you like the other,
Without the make up on,
you will stand out like a star,
So don't worry girl
your beautiful just the way you are,

And you should not care
what those shallow people think,
Cause if you try
to impress them,
then your missing out
on the deep,
your already beautiful,
smart, and complete,
but without make up on,
you can say that
your unique
