Remember to smile

when they ridicule you behind your back

speaking words so sharp, they go right through your tender heart.

Remember to laugh it off when they call you crazy,

After all, doesn’t that quote say

“all the best people are”.

And you don’t even have to believe it,

so long as you grin and bear it.

Don’t forget you’re beautiful.

That is with the proper tone, filter and lighting

because beauty is never about the rawness of your soul,

but about pleasing a society so twisted and cracked.

That beauty is only beauty when it is marketed, packaged and sold.
