i know / thats how the story goes

she stoops so low
just to get someone to praise her
the way she acts
you'd think a pack of wolves had raised her
she always looks so eager
like a dog that's been well trained
but underneath that pretty smile
lies a place that corruption's stained
she's intimate with the media
it tells her what to be
the styles and musts surround her like a cloud
so thick she cannot see.
while she sits there over-obsessing
the world is passing her by
i see her there sitting in the corner
i see her and just sigh
i know its all for nothing
i know that no one cares
no one lives to see her make up
or how she does her hair
i know she steels her sister's things
and i know her sister knows
if she had sence she'd buy things herself
but thats just how the story goes

many live in such fantasy. it's sad to be captured by Media in such an excessive way.thx 4 sharing it.

You my friend are an amazing poet!!!
But I don't think I need to tell you that
do I? = D

Well put...I meant to say! It is almost 5 a.m. and I haven't been to bed, insomnia, anyone?!?!

Very deep and well-out. I would love to know who this is about, or is it fiction:)?

This is quite a deep write, in that low self-esteem can make a person stoop to all kinds of tricks to raise notice. A good and strong poem...I really enjoyed this...Ron

Beautiful flow... Good rhymes, great theme.

Kathy Lockhart The PoetBay support member heart!
sadness, lonliness, pretention, drama in the most raw and senseless way. Good rhyme and flow.
