Help me understand why
You would want to change
The blueprint of
What makes you, you?
Explain the desire to undo
The reflection
A mirror is used to?
Why does the erasure of lines –
Designs of a myriad of times
That is your history;
Make you feel like you can
Turn back the clock?

To me – it’s just a mystery…

Botox; fillers; collagen implants
To plump those sagging parts –
Will not mend the broken hearts
Of those who feel incomplete

Don’t get me wrong;
If you’re a survivor
Of a cruel disease,
An acid attack;
An axe wielding maniac –
Then I get it!
I fully comprehend
Why you would risk
The invasion of
A surgeons knife;
How that would surely
Change your life…

But why else would you want
Your face disassembled
To have it resemble
A grotesque parody;
Of the looks you were born with –
Who you used to be?
Social media dictates
Your self-esteem;
How many ‘likes’ will you get
For your implants extreme?
Your trout pout?
Or the abs you acquired
Without working out?

You think you look different –
That now you fit in;
But you’re still the same person within…
Just a victim of nature’s lament –
Another clone to add to
The plastic movement.

Botox; fillers; collagen implants
To plump those sagging parts –
Will not mend the broken hearts
Of those who feel incomplete
