The Girl Staring Back

I act as if
I have been dealt
a great load of pain.
That is what you're supposed to do 
nowadays.
So you can be
respected
So you can be
noticed
but you have to be
pretty too.
It didn't used to be true
but everyday
it gets harder
to smile
harder
to laugh
harder 
to look in the mirror.
When I do
I no longer like
the girl staring back.
