Curvy Geek

I am curvy and nerdy

Self-esteem a little sturdy

Hmm. can't even count how many times I've been told I have a body that people pay for

But how is that supposed to make me feel good, when those people are always shamed for

I love my oversized '90s style, and I love my fitted crop tees

And even though I try to balance my masc and fem side, my hips are what people oversee

At times I don't know if people are attracted to my face or my body

I mean.. just think of me of that cool as hell girl named Bobbi

Instead, I'd rather be acknowledged for my intelligence and not my curvy physique

And realize, that just cause I got curves don't mean I'm no geek
