For the love of all things good.
Heed my simple words:
I don’t have to be pretty.
I don’t need to hide behind
Layers of makeup that don’t
Show me in the least.
I don’t wear the latest fashions.
I don’t drink or go to clubs.
I am who I am and my inner beauty shines.
I’m sorry you don’t like this
Or the way I do my hair.
I’ll never be the cookie cutter girl
And I’ll never do what others
Expect me to do.
I will never be perfect.
I will never be thin.
I may not be accepted but truthfully?
That’s okay with me.
I never claimed to be perfect.
I’ve never claimed to be neat.
I prefer comfort over the latter.
And hey, I like those books I read.
I don’t need your insincerity and
I sure as hell don’t need your drama.
There’s only one thing that I
Could ever want in this world.
I want the world to see the real me
In everything I do.
