ImpatienceMy fingers slide across the edges of the buttons.Every once in awhile I'll stop and check.No change has occured.No messages have been received.I go back to my busy work.I'm on the computer or doing my homework.Then, what seems like an eternity has passed,I'll pick it up again.Two minutes?Impossible.Still no answer.Still no reply.Reluctantly i give my attention to something else,with the impatience tickling the back of my mind,as if it's waiting for me to spring.BEEP. I snatch up my phone,relieved that I finally got the message.Oh, wait.That was the microwave...And now, I'm back to waiting.
In My Own SkinI'm waiting for the day I can stand next to her and say"I'm just as pretty as she is."The day will come when I don't decide to diet...Just to try it...For the 3rd timeThe day will come when I can hear a compliment,And believe itSee, society expects me to fit into an image,picture perfectLiving an imaginary lifepicture perfectIn an imagined body that seems just a bit too far out of reachpicture perfect"Never judge a book by its cover"Ingrained into our brains from the startRead between the lines of that book:“Be yourself, but be just like me.”Because the media judges people endlessly,Changes us relentlessly;Flawless skinSensual curvesPerfect lipsAnd a smile that kills“Buy our product!Or else you’ll never liveTo the standards that we establishTo set you up for your perpetual failure”When I look in the mirror, all I see is theoverweight,blemished teenagerAnd she hasn't an idea of where she fits inYour “perfect” girl
