War with Beauty

One flawless billboard,

One impeccable magazine cover,

Surrounded by a constant strive of perfection.

Too captivated in having an unblemished body.

Thigh gap.

Bikini bridge.

Starting a war in defining beauty,

That “it” factor sending people into a whirl of dissatisfaction,

Dissatisfaction that plays with our emotions, and actions.

Girls and boys, no matter the age,

“Let me look like the model with the dazzling body shape,”

“That celebrity with the beautifully carved face.”

Those fashion trends that mask true beauty.

When will they end?
