Passion isn't the key to success. It does not guarantee greatness. It simply keeps you sane while you work your butt off.

Maybe she's born with it.
No, it’s just the Maybelline.
A tiara sparkles her crown
as it looks down on its inferior society.
She saves lives and the world,
one coat of mascara at a time.
Still, She's a turtle in her makeup.

She skins her knees. They don’t bleed.She just oozes regal beauty on a floor.At the end of day,
She her flaws expose themselves.
She skins knees. She bleeds.

Her glossy waves form a beauty tsunami,
and she washes away all insecurities
with her ocean of hair.
When the tsunami dies and the gloss dries,
her waves deteriorate to dry ripples.
They crack like a desert.

She sees herself in the mirror.
Beauty Queen faces another side.
Her tiara transforms to rust,
an ocean of waves adapt to a desert,
but she patches the knees,
and she continues to gildedly dazzle.
