This Girl

This Girl 

What if I wasn’t me?

What if I was that beauty queen I saw on TV?

That girl that all the boys seem to want

The one that they say “dammmmmmmn” when she struts

With her long hair, flawless skin, and perfect features

The world says “you need to look like her” that’s what they teach us

 

L’Oreal, MAC, Maybelline, and CoverGirl

Maxim, Glamour, Cosmo, and Vogue

All tell me if I want to be beautiful and have a man

I have to do what I’m told

Pluck this, pull that, tighten this, whiten that

And if I want to keep him well that’s another story, song, romantic comedy, or magazine feature

 

Its hard being a girl and even harder being a woman

my insecurities may consume me when I’m low, but they will never overwhelm me

I will forever be.. 5’6, brown eyes, full lips, wide hips, curly hair, always smiling, white boy loving, burger craving, dancing diva

What if I wasn’t me…?

Well I am and I don’t think that’s ever going to change.
