Angsty poems, all telling my opinions of the different social clicks that have become so rampant. Each chapter starts with the name of the click as I know them. I'm sorry if these offend anyone, but this is how I see it.

Preps
 
You claim beauty of face,
You never speak of your heart
 
You condemn those who aren’t like you
Yet you consider those who are wannabes.
 
Is anyone good enough?
Are your doubts that strong?
Do you really look in the mirror
Without hating the person you see
Staring back?
 
Do you wear all that make-up to cover
Blemishes of the skin
Or blemishes of the character?
 
Are those fine clothes worn
To attract people
Or repel them?
 
Hollister
Abercrombie and Fitch
People are walking billboards
these days.
 
Personalities following fashion,
Wherever it may roost.
Forgetting ones self for the sake of being
Accepted.
 
Poster boys and girls
For being ‘cool’
Examples of perfect
Teenagers.
 
If so perfect,
Why do you verbally beat others?
If such a fine example,
Why do you need to escape
Into a world not meant for such young eyes?
 
Your mask is one of composure.
Your mask is one of disinterest.
When the mask slips,
Your true colors show.
You put on the Hollister shirt,
The Abercrombie and Fitch pants,
Straighten your hair,
Make it shine,
And put on the mask again.
 
All costumes,
All masks,
Life for you is a
Masquerade.
 
Trust no one
Let no one trust you
Except those like you.
 
Go back to your
Masquerade
Of Hollister and
Abercrombie and Fitch.
