this basicly rap up what girls go threw in the morning

It hurts

It hurts being pretty all the makeup, eyeliner, perms, curls, and flatirons

Just to look like or be that girl. so we wake up two hours before school starts

just to get ready to hide the pain the loneliness the scars of being a girl.

We heat up the flatirons while we wash off the pain and sorrow of feeling like you’re not good enough

to be yourself so we put up a wall that takes two hours to build every morning.

We start with the hair making Shure every curl is where it should be. Then it’s the makeup. Caking on the fake smile, beauty, our personality

now the wall is almost finished all is left is the piece of fabric we call clothes

making Shure  everything is tight or short just so you’ll notice us. 

Then the wall is finished and believe it or not that what society calls beauty

a wall hiding the real you.
