looking at yourself
in the vanity mirror
sees you for who you are

Is it vain to want
to primp and pamper
for a special occasion?

society enhances peoples'
appearances lending towards
this need for a mask:

whether to enhance or cover,
That is fairly subjective anyway.
Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.

The younger set wants something
different than the older ones:
It's a matter of taste and desire.

Vanity is and will be present
in the past and the future.
It's your prerogative to choose.
