I decided to be positive
just to give it a whirl
pretty dress, nice shoes
hair done, makeup on
all the accessories
People smiling without showing teeth
words coming out without meaning
ears open but not listening
interested not really caring
There were others in clothes made of tatters
teeth the color not pretty
holes in shoes too small
hair a mess, makeup gone
People not smiling, not even a grin
mouths closed with no words to tell
others being ignored because of their chagrin
passer buyers not even a glance
What has happened?
Don’t we care?
Is Armani the most important thing that we wear?
Aren't we all equal in the things we posses?
