Facade

Look at her

One of many snowflakes

Flailing around

In the blizzard

Layers added instead of peeled

Glowing for the camera

Desperate in the dark 

An identity

Born and affirmed

Freedom discarded 

Show me the girl

With less forms

Less validation required

Floating in humility

Despite praise

Beauty isn’t incepted

Despite most vain effort

Conform to what others want

Dress up your sorrows

But you’re no princess

Strip it all off

Show me your essence

Beneath your Facade
