The Young Girl

Barbie dolls

Makeup phones

Princess gowns

 

Gone

 

Plastic friends

Cell phone bills

Hospital gowns

 

A young girl

Naive

Young

Innocent

 

Still

A teenager

 

still 

Naive

Young

Innocent

 

The knife cuts deep

Prettier

The plastic goes in

Prettier!

The cuts sewn shut

PRETTIER!

 

The young girl

Naive

Young

Innocent

 

Covered in scars

 

Prettier

 

The young girl

 

Boobs are not hers

 

Prettier!

 

The young girl

 

Infections everywhere

 

PRETTIER!

 

The young girl

Naive

Young

Innocent

 

Beautiful

 

The surgeries

Unneeded

The pain

Tolerated

The healing

Painful

The product?

Fake.

 

The young girl

Naive

Young

Innocent

 

A natural beauty.

Perfect as she is

 

The young girl

Naive

Young

Innocent
