a beauty’s complex

I lie
From time to time
About my weight

I lie
Occasionally
About the brand of my outfit

I lie
Most of the time
About not using makeup

I lie
All the time
About my workout routine

I lie
To the people
Who praise my looks every day

But I’ll never
Ever.
Lie to myself
That I’m not pretty.
-2015

Note: I wrote this piece last year when I was still in high school.
