i want to wear short shorts,
knowing i look great
to wear dresses,
knowing i look extravagant
to wear jeans,
knowing they look perfect
but why? why can't i?

i want to wear long skirts,
from charities
i want to wear tee-shirts,
from thrift stores
i want to wear sweatpants,
from gym class
but why? why can't i?
