Don't Suffocate Yourself
My dear, don't suffocate yourself / it is dangerous
hiding / shielding your strength / giving in to this world's view
of who you should be / the woman you should become / beauty
you should be seeking / goals you should be meeting / life
isn't about that / no / life is more than style / charm.
What is life / but a vapor / a breath of air
in your lungs / in / out / release the anger, my dear / breathe
cool clean air / don't pollute your intake for some image / the world
believes you should be / this and that / charming and made up / be real
unique to you / not the world.
Pollution is evil words / strung together in a loop / a tape
that never ends / a hate motto with only one goal / beauty
is buried / hatred overtakes your heart / my dear
why do you let them win?
Winning is for attention-seeker / money-grabbers / my dear
are you one of those / royally spoiled princesses / hate
in your heart / money in your pocket / burning
holes every day?
Are you kind / endearing / wholesome
acts in your daily heart-to-hearts / looking
for love in even the smallest places / hidden doors
locked tight in the castle / needing a key
that was lost long ago?
Did you suffocate your inner beauty / to find / outward
beauty in worldly dreams that hide your wholesome heart / dreams
hiding in the depths of your heart / ready to be heard / be seen
by more than just your eyes / dream, my dear / your strength
is waiting to be known.
