Don’t tell me what to buy

where to shop



how much to spend.



Don’t tell me how to do my hair
how many highlights to get
what style to choose.



Don’t tell me what clothes to wear
which shirts are cute


that orange doesn’t flatter.


Don’t tell me which boy to date

or who is dumb



that he is gay.





Don’t tell me how much to weigh

what dress size to be


how tall is too tall.



Don’t tell me how to be
popular, cool, pretty

awesome, liked


envied, loved


drooled
over,

normal,



funny, sweet,


beautiful,


sexy,



hot,


chased after,



FAKE!




Tell me how I can be
smart, nice, caring,
real, goofy, loved
(in a real way)
Intelligent,
Friendly,
unusual,
Unique,
kind,

ME!
