Face Value is Only Skin Deep 

Black nail polish covers her bitten finger nails, 

light gray circles under her softly applied concealer and gently curled eyelashes. 

A crease circling her hair from her pony tail.


Everyday, the same thing. 

The same make up, the same color scheme.
The same wardrobe, just a different color.

Feminine? Eh. Masculine? Girly? Boyish? 
Lazy? Tired? Stressed? Sick? 

Too fashion-forward? Etc. 

The truth is…
‘human’ is the most important identity, 

or word

to attach to another person.

We, you, are so much more.
