Look Into My Eyes

Look into my eyes and realize This is a society I despise They say they love you But they care so little They think if they fib just a little bit They'll have you around their Pretty little finger But you're trapped in their ugly web of lies. Look into my eyes and see The life society makes isn't a dream Maybe you want it to be But if you wake up with everything You've ever wanted Would you be happy Look in to my eyes and notice Looks seem to be this society's Main focus If you're seen as fat your life line Might as well be flat And if you're seen as too skinny You too are considered disgusting Look into my eyes and realize This is a society I despise With eyes so narrow You'll look over at that fellow And laugh at him For his life falling apart

Very emotive write, Kyleigh. It is sad how people judge on appearances. It is also sad people lie in order to manipulate. One must take the high road and focus on being the best you can be. Although it may be bothersome, you must live according to your beliefs and values. Love the deep write and apologize for sounding like a parent. Peace:).
