"Hey, see if they've got any pie. Bring me some pie. I love me some pie."-Dean Winchester, Supernatural


Unruly curly chestnut hair



Thick and unmanageable

Huge forehead with heart-shaped widow’s peak



Framing her face

Thin rounded-rectangular glasses



Hiding sparkling hazel eyes

Large pig-shaped, upturned nose



Covered in blackheads

Chapped, pouty pinkish red lips



Upstaged by a small cocoa mole above

Pale, acne-scarred skin, red with blemishes



Covering her facial bones



C-cups protruding from her chest



Looking smaller than others’

Slightly round belly, soft and squishy



If only it would flatten like it should

Love handles creating even more curves



As if she needed any more



Dark hair defining her arms



But she wishes they would fade

Long fingers she uses too often typing creatively



Speeding, but never keeps up with her brain

Moles sprouting from her arms, 50 or more



Almost like she’s a living connect the dots

Red lines across her skin under her left forearm



Showing how hard & imperfect her life is



Thick, curvy thighs, yet muscular and defined



Though she complains about it each day

Knobby knees snap and crack with each move



Like rice krispies, fragile for her age

Thin, toned calves from wedges and bike rides



The only part of her body she’s proud of

Skinny feet, smooth and almost ‘calf’ perfect



With long, slim toes, foot model-worthy



Though she’s only 5’6” and 163 pounds



She’s not fat, but beautifully curved

She may not be beautiful in the eyes of the media



But she’s not ugly, that’s for sure

She may not be social



But she’s smart enough to make up for it

She may not be perfect…but she’s perfect to me



She may not be who I want her to be



But she’s who I am and who I will be


I am Chelsea, and I am beautifully unique <3

Looking at myself, all I can find is negativity. So instead, I battled it with all my might and wrote what I really saw and felt about it, all observations from deep in my soul. This is the real me, and I'm not ashamed.

I liked it...very truthful and powerful. But you said you're " only five foot six" as if you're less-than or something. I'm 16 and four-ten...so if you're saying you're short, you're not short at all....
