Nighthawk Review

My Face
by Katie Kantaris

I look at my reflection
A pale face stares back
Peppered with blemishes
The glass starts to crack
So I put on my makeup
The process is long
But it fixes my face
I don't want to look "wrong"
I put on concealer, lipstick, and powder
With all of this makeup
I feel beautiful, prouder
But when I look in the mirror
My face makes me gasp
Yes I am beautiful
But my face is a mask
The face in the mirror
My reflection, My Face!
Is no longer there
It is gone, just erased
So I wipe off my makeup
In strokes one, two, and three
And happily my face
Comes back smiling at me
