Because I Am Flawless...


I am flawless.

I go to school with no make-up,

I get judged.

I wear the same seven outfits because that's what I like,

I get judged.

I am flawless.

No filter,

No edit,

No stickers,

No hand gestures,

I am flawless.

Because I did not wake up like this.

I washed my face and brushed my teeth,

I brushed my edges on my head and I changed my clothes.

Therefore I did not wake up like this.


I am flawless.

I have dreads, a boyfriend, and a family.

I have friends, a nice home, and food to eat three times a day.


I am flawless.

Are you?
