Barbie Doll Beauty

Just a quick glance in the mirror before I go, she says.
She runs to the bathroom.
Yikes, nags insecurity. Look at that blemish, it continues. He will be so focused on that that there is no way he will listen to you.
She pulls out more makeup.
Gross, screams doubt. Who told you that that dress would be a good idea? It exclaims. Cover up. No one wants to see that.
Her eyes drift to her closet.
No way, expresses societal standards. You’re bringing a bikini with a waist like that? It says, exasperated. Hit the gym or don’t even think about going swimming.  
Her toes inch for the scale.
When did pimples become points

or

Dresses become deal breakers
When did bodies become contestants and

society the judge

When did beauty become defined as Botox and barbie dolls

Tall

Fat

Poor

Short

Skinny

White

Rich

Black
All have one thing in common:
Human.
