Untitled (Possibly named 'A Hidden Message')

The incision upon vanity,
Maniacally derived from insanity,
Trying to claim the images washed into the mind.
Constant deception of so many kinds.
Falling to believe the movement is grand,
Bowing to perfection they can never understand.
So many falling victim, believing it's the way,
The unknowing will forever make the best of prey.
A simple plan, yet so easy to instigate,
And another is drawn in to physically disintegrate.

This is my outlook upon the ideas of beauty that the media has corrupted many people into believing. I feel the messages you can see in television, magazines, and anything along those lines are becoming so blatant, yet people still aren't recognizing it. Many will try and argue, but the majority of people are influenced by popular fashion trends (whether it be hair, cloth etc.), and some go to drastic measures to achieve such looks you will find throughout all these 'celebrities'. Perhaps you could call it conformist? Maybe some simply feel it will increase self-confidence? I'm sure there are many possible reason, but the media ultimately plays a big role in the initial spread of such things. This is one of many reasons why I believe the media is simply a virus within humanity.

Thank you to those who took the time to read and feel free to comment with feedback, thoughts, or opinions.
