Take a Look

I like to dress myself up.
Some days I can look like a mess.
Another day, I prepare myself for a big date.

Girls are obsessed with me.
They stare at me for hours at a time.
Boys could care less about me,
however, there are some exceptions.
No! I am not a doll.

Rumor says that I can crack without contact.
There has not been such an incident.

Some learn to hate me,
yet some can love me as much as they love themselves.
Keep in mind,
to hate me, you'd have to hate yourself.

If you hurt me,
I have the power to bestow seven years of bad luck upon you.

Some days, I could be as bright as the sun.

Unlike my transparent ancestors,
I am the master imitator.
