I am gorgeous,
But I defy super models,
I am not trapped in a superficial cage.
Not bound to metal bars, I posses the key.
The key to being proud, to having self-appreciation.
I am beautiful,
My spirit is free,
I never want a perfect physique.
Imperfection is glorious.
I am lovely,
I have skin on my bones,
I am not consumed by self-loathing.
I am magnificent,
But I am not a beauty queen,
Yet I'm still amazing in and outside.
I'm not tortured by perfection,
Not swallowed up by barbie doll girls.
I am different,
In my soul, flesh and bones,
I will never let anyone make my
gorgeousness turn to superficiality.

This piece reflects on how teenage girls think less of themselves. We are all amazing. And we need to feel happy about ourselves.

I wish I had this self-confidence, but I will never be satisfied with the way I look.
