As gossips stare a colorless soul is bared

Never learned to share, never much cared

Such a pity, such a pain being so vain

Flawed behavior tarnishes transformation

  Time to shelve oneself for hibernation

  4. Yes I’m vain.
    I look into my mirror and see me.
    The way I think I am.
    You look at me from the outside,
    I pray to God you see my beauty shining from within.

  8. Sounds rather like the psyche of reality TV stars: famous for being famous.
