Heart, Capsulized

Courtesy of Mag 222
















you can change
how fast you age
with bleached white teeth

pump up lips,
tattoo them
hot pink 

how your
skin appears
with fake tans

not to mention
hair dyed to hide
unwanted gray

but there's nothing,
not a pill, that will
ever change your
thoughtless heart

true that.
you can pretty the package all you want but at the end of the day....your heart will shine through...and that will tell the story...

What a pretty way to tell the truth, indeed after all everything comes down to a " heart", if its beautiful then there is no need to wear makeup.

i hate the media-frenzy of perfection, what's wrong with just being yourself?

perfect! It ain't the exterior it's the interior!

Hard hitting , Laurie , Fearless....glad i am not the only one to notice the pressure the machine puts on women to be sexualised rather than wise into their old age , lest they intimidate the Patricians of "Progress"

Nothing alien can change the inside, indeed...

You're right at the end what's in heart - reflecting on the face, no matter how much you cover it...
