Candy Coated

The Eve Series

Hello Wild Ones🧡🧡🧡,

I hope you are well and doing great things.I hope that you are taking care of yourself and loving every inch of yourself. I am currently full of hope and grace and trusting that great things are going to happen for me.

(I decided to be satirical with this piece to criticize the idea that women can’t be beautiful and successful)

Candy Coated

Slip those heels on

Add another layer of foundation

Layer your perfume with another

Brush your wig evenly

Smear that red lipstick on your

And then show up looking pretty

Girls like you fear their own beauty

To the world that’s all you are

Pretty girls, there’s no way you have brains

You are candycoated

They will lick you up

But never too deep to taste the spice of dreams

Never enough to taste the bitterness of your pain

To them you are pretty nothing else

So don’t worry your pretty little mind

Shut up and let the smart ones speak

Your beauty should be enough to bring the world to your feet

Creases and furrows from the hustle for your dreams will steal your beauty

Don’t you get it? You can’t be so selfish to want both!

You are either pretty or success and hardworking

Even if you make it, do you think your beauty isn’t the reason you are there?

Know your place, woman

And just be pretty

    1. jackie says:

      Nooo, I wrote the poem as a satire that women can’t have both beauty and success

      1. Hmm, yea I get it 💜💜💜💜💜

  3. Emma says:

    Okay .. now that I see it’s a satire I get it.
    Why is pretty enough to be your trophy for life? What if you’re smart too? Do you keep your ideas locked up cause pretty is enough ? 😫

    1. jackie says:

      I have never gotten this concept . We are often expected to choose one; you are either pretty or smart. It should be both.

      1. Emma says:

        I agree ! 🙇🏾‍♀️
