"I am a Witch. I am a B*tch. I don't care what you think."~Yoko Ono

i wish

that my arms were not my arms,

that my knobby knees belonged
to someone else.

but these are my skinny arms,

these knees are mine.

one day,

I will grow accustomed to these things
that make me


but for now,

I’m a deer,

a newborn fawn,

unsure of herself,

and her wobbly appendages.

This is a beautiful and honest poem. I think we can all relate with these insecurities.
