It is an interesting thing to
realize where my idea
of beauty arose from.
for the longest time, my whole
life, i’ve turned in a bit at the middle
in an attempt to be the petite
perfectly pulled together-even-to-go-to-the-mailbox
person who i held as the proper
presentation of beauty.
i’ve never achieved it
and was never meant to
i’ve my own design
that is impossible to fit into that
Thank God the day
layers began to shed
were not counted against me any longer
but used for the strength and ingenuity
my kind of beauty they were meant for.
