Ready, Set, Me

"Ready, Set, Me"
Content with the thought of honesty   
Never living life like this before
You think it is a travesty
I do this for richer or poorer
Makeup is for self haters.

Unadulterated my face is bare
The audience sees God's version
Sure there are some who care
Not using makeup's immersion

Those truly my friends
Will see me as lovely 
A perfect character 

Living indifferently outside 
of the squawk box

    Karl, good for you! I suppose we are all constrained by our culture. However, not to be enveloped by it takes will power. I personally dislike makeup in general. What ever happened to the ivory soap girl as an allegory for our society?
