I am not

The label taunted at me


I am not

The lies you push through me


I am not

An image of perfection


I am not

A perfect confection

Pasted and pretty for all to see


Try as I may,

I am simply me.



I do not

Have every hair in place


I do not

Constantly worry about my face


I do not

Keep it all together


I do not

Pretend I’m never under the weather

Or that absolutely nothing

Can ruffle my feathers


Try as I may,

I am simply me.
