“Hey baby see how many likes your photo got today! you’re so beautiful”.
Yeah? Everyone loves baby pictures!!!!!
Then she accepts that her beauty is measured by social media likes..I’m sure you know how children learn so fast, because even you can never forget the ” I kill your one star’s “and “the I be monkey be one be one’s ” Eager to grow. She is now a teen not yet eighteen.
She creates her social media accounts and hurriedly posts her innocent looking pictures.
Hoping to get some beauty validity from polite or aggressive strangers.
But all she got was just 5 likes.
One from you her mother
One from her best friend’s brother
One from her cousin sister
One from a church brother
One from her God mother.
A part of her shrunk….
where were all the likes I got as a kid? She wondered.
Hoping to help her curious mind, she went FBI on the other girls that got 800-1k likes by simply posting stuff and nonsense!! (not in most cases though).
Wow!! They made themselves extraordinarily attractive..”she thought ”
Exposing saggy cleavages. Properly edited baby skin, Lashes, Artificial nails, Baked face, With no pimples or scars, even on her own very best friend’s face, Adaku!!!
Ah ah!! but everyone in the area knew Adaku had extreme pimples to the extent that one would think the pimples made love to themselves and reproduced charming baby pimples.
Adaku now looks fair in pictures too! Her perception of beauty changed
She began to gradually remodel into artificiality. Just then you noticed and rained complains!!
Your hair is too long…how do you expect’ book to enter “with that thing on! That is not even your natural hair!
Your skirt is too short!
Your gown is too tight!
Your nails have too many colours!
This your face beat is too much oooooh!
Must you squeeze your lips in such manner to take pictures?
Why are your legs bent in such deforming manner?
How do you expect good husband to find you!!!
Because of you! Mother!
