Secrets of a pretty face

This is a poem about what being a woman involves… Do not be deceived by the perfect look.”

The perfect image I see in the mirror is still mine…

So elegant, so polished….Looks like I’m fine.

Looks so distinguished and cold,

Never tired and forever bold.

My lipstick is still scarlet red

Despite all the things I’ve said…

No dripping eyeliner for me

In spite of everything I could see…

My cheeks blush so full of life,

Even after his decision cut me like a knife…

My hair still stays in place

With the same curly lock across my face…

My pearls shall make me shine

As I pretend I am not the one to whine…

I shall not cry over spilt milk,

Instead I shall spoil my femininity with silk.

My image shall not speak of my state

And it shall not reveal my fate…

Because that’s a woman’s honorable mission:

Look impeccable and never talk of her condition.

    Great poem you wrote there, Crina! Nothing to discuss this time :))
    Being a woman looks very hard to me. In fact, I think I am very lucky to be a boy.

    Keep writing , because you are really good! And good luck!

    Unfortunately, without a little bit of luck these days, you won’t get discovered by the right person and then get big!
