No New Paint Brush

Tue, 12/16/2014 - 21:06 -- T.ross


Eye shadow hides the bruises from the mean girls

blush hides the punches from my boyfriends hands

lipstick hides the pimple that sprung up over night

why do yo wear makeup? you will never understand.

'Cause understanding what i go through 

is harder than just

making over my face

this way is easier


i can only imagine the amount of time it would take to 


cry out everything

since like


but like

spending an hour in a half to make my face


makes my

not so perfect life

just a little more

imperfect... wasnt expecting that answer, i know

girls were not born with Cat eyes

where did the color contacts spring up from?

these stillettos and high pumps

these tracks and lace fronts 

what happen to embracing

the most ever amazing

temple of God?

lord please spare the rod.

every time i wake up

and put on that makeup

i seem to forget that God

is using his own paint brush

yor beautiful baby...

Powerful expression!
