Who You Want Me To Be

I will never be a skinny girl,
I’ve got curves and I like them.
I’ll never have the perfect looks,
But I work with what I’ve got.
I won’t ever starve myself-
Or make myself lose my lunch.
I won’t cake on the makeup
And paint on my jeans.
You won’t ever catch me
Trying to look perfect
With a toothpaste ad smile,
And shampoo commercial hair.
I all I want to be is me,
But me isn’t enough.
“Model” me is all that’s acceptable.
But I will tell you:
I’ll never weigh 105.
I’ll never get rid of that funky scar on my nose.
I’ll never cover up that freckle on my eyelid.
I’ll never lose that cowlick at my hairline.
I can’t be a “model” me-
Can’t be who you want me to be.
