Media beauty versus natural beauty

unattainable is the game.
lifted out of reach,
extending our grasp.
leaving room
for wanting more.
inflated with doubt,
we slacken in defeat.
wait, you mean
we can combat this?
products being a cure-all.
coincidence?
only those who portray
flawlessness
shall be viewed,
while onlookers buy
to be.
flesh my not last
longer than plastic,
but it’s more gratifying.
