Vanity Schmanity

It seems , lately, we care so much about vanity,
It's enough to make you lose all your sanity,
worrying about clothes that we wear,
if they have a spot, stain or a tare,
Does my hair look right today,
or is static making it all fly away,
these shoes look great, but they are so tight,
well, I suppose, I can get through the night,
Is my makeup applied the right way,
if it is  not, what will people say,
the colors we wear, must be right for the season,
will someone please, tell me the reason,

the truth is, were all just bones and skin,
wheather were fat, skinny or thin,
in a pair of sweats and tee shirt,
or in sparkly nylons and ruffely skirts,

we should care about being the best we can be,
should we achieve that,
than our souls are set free.

    Nicely, rhymed poem with a not so subtle message! Did you use spell check? 'Ruffely' should be 'ruffly', and 'wheather' should be 'whether'! Also, 'tear' is the proper vocabulary word not 'tare'! Nevertheless, this was a nicely-conceived poem! I enjoyed your evaluation of societal expectations!
