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.
