A contemporary containment of
superficial portrayals of an image
to obscure to duplicate
   Yet you see hundreds of same-
   minded 14 & 15 year olds stretching
   the limit of beauty ... to belong
That same screen reflects countless
materialistic objects we "need" but don't know why
the same reflection built on popularity
   Individuality growing more extinct
   because evolving within your own agenda
   sets you aside from the sheep
Magazines depict the loss of natural beauty
now re-constructed in photo shop and etched
into the impressionable minds of our youth
   A diluted statement of what beauty is
   and what a palette of colors can hide
   leads value into lies
Showcased are the image hoarding zombies
to fake to realize their life is a script
promoting the control money can have
   Beauty can be the ugliest creation shroud
   in the most expensive attire but no amount
   of money can hide ... morality
Days becoming endangered to the simple man
when controversy begs to shake your hand
another victim to a conformists plan
   Resist those scams that doubt your value
   established only to populate consumerism
   in this marketable flavor we call, life.
