Flawless, Because I Said So

Tue, 11/18/2014 - 20:02 -- ALF

Flawless. Why, because I woke up like this. 

Fake nails, fake hair, fake eyes, yall can have that

Why, because i woke up like this.

Flawless. What is flawless? 

Being perfect? Nope

Having no mistakes? No

Flawless is not giving up on me when everyone else has.

Its realizing my wrongs instead of trying to hide them.

Showing off the real me instead of trying to hid it behind some make up or some other fake identity. 

Making me who I am Not, or who i wish to be. 

Flawless is a new type of word. 

A word that shows empowerment. 

Being able to say I am who I am, and I am proud to be me. 

Why, Because I am Flawless. But not because The government says I am. 

Or because the next guy or next girl says I am, but because I say i am.

Why, Because I am... FLAWLESS!
