Porcelain Doll

Make yourself up

Like a porcelain doll.

Primp and perm,

Then paint your face.

Make yourself a porcelain smile,

Hard to the touch,

But fragile in frame.

Tread your steps with gentile grace.

Don't stub your toe

Or hide your face.

Be careful now.

Don't let your feelings show.

Pretend, act, lie, deceive.

It doesn't matter.

It is strength you need.

Just make yourself up like a porcelain doll.

Smile, and no one will know

The feelings you dare not show.
