P is for Pretty Hurts by Beyonce

A-Z Banner

Starched suits.

Flawless make-up.

A job.

Return to a lonely house day-in and day-out.

A wet washcloth used to wipe away the make-up, the sweat and dry from your flawless skin.

No husband, no children…no one to spend a second with.

The most important thing to you was always how you looked and what others thought of you. The only thing, no one was ever good enough for you.

Pretty hurts- it kept you alone. Now you’re old.

Even though I enjoy the Beyonce version, I really like this cover by Chloe and Halle Bailey.

Aww…that was sad! To be alone esp in old age with no one to take care, that is terrible!

It is, but when we constantly search for perfection we tend to miss out on the good stuff.
