Painting Butterflies

Written by: Jessica K

Living soulless in the barricade 
Following the masquerade
Hating how we were made

Believing beauty is pain
Bowing to the strain
So they don't have to be plain

Flawless as porcelin
Trying to hide who's within
Not seeing that she's a gem

Disgusted by reality
Defying originality 
Defeating genuinity  

Painting butterflies today
Popularity is all grey
In beauty we're embay
