I think I’m cute
But I am not beautiful
I have thick curls
But I dream of being sleek and smooth
I’m petite and curvy
I wish I was model, tall and thin
My eyes are brown
But I think I would look better with green
And don’t get me started on the indignity
But you know, I’m tired of looking in the mirror
Only to catalog my flaws.
When did I decide that being me
I am cute.
I exit the shower with a mass of curls
That other girls torture themselves to attain.
I am petite and curvy…
Like Salma Hayek!
Yeah, just like her…
Well… then again…
Okay, so sort of like her.
My eyes look good on me
And freckles add character to my face.
I’ve given myself permission to be me.
