When Models Collide

Updated on August 11, 2017


You’ve got your magazine that claims to speak the truth


What this society wants you to be


A sixty year old body trying to look like the youth



You let them cut and break to make a better you


The addiction becomes viral


As you change every aging factor to be someone new



With your faces of plastic


You think you look so fantastic


But you’re an emotional static


Who fears you’ll be a wasted status



You seek to claim that Hollywood status of fame


Not convincing a single soul


They will soon forget your name



You want to be a model because you think it’s great


You want them to see beauty


But all they see is someone from head to toe who is fake



With your faces of plastic


You think you look so fantastic


But you’re emotional static


Who fears you’ll be a wasted status


When it’s all over and you are looking back


Deep in debt, and scars full of pain


You realize that you have fallen off the track



See what the world considers beauty is merely a fading scene


Yet you committed yourself too


Changing what God created to hopefully make what you’ve seen



With your faces of plastic


You think you look so fantastic


But you’re emotional static


Who fears you’ll be a wasted status




Your face shows no emotion behind a wall of plastic


Your face showing only one feature


You can’t stretch the skin like elastic



Guess you can really say “you’re a real life Barbie”


With plastic features but no Ken


You are shallow and no one feels sorry

      Very well written and so true

      It's what is on the inside that counts. I prefer people to like me for who I am. not some patched up fake

      Women and men of substance are not that easy to find. Excellently penned verse. Thanks

      I really liked this. Very well written, and so very true. I don't get what the fascination is with fake women these days. I'd much rather a real woman than some plastic Barbie doll. Most models are nothing more than sex novelty dolls with a heartbeat. Gross. Voted Awesome and up.
