Here I lay, for the third day
The clothes i'm wearing have yet to be washed
My hairs in a bun
My makeup flushed
Having no desire to get up
Here I lay, day after day
Each morning I wake, and say to myself
"Maybe, i'll get ready today"
Each night I pray
Tomorrow will be the day
"I don't do it because i'm lazy"
The words I try and believe
Because though that is partly correct
My head knows why I am this way
If I ever had to answer
I would be a simple "Why try?"
Because no matter if im wearing a t-shirt and sweats
Or heels and a dress
I will never be noticed
Without fat on my chest
If I dont have the perfect body
Or the long flowing hair
The clothes I put on me
Are to hide what society doesn't want me to share
"So why try?" I say
Why try when the boy won't notice?
Why try if people won't stare?
Why try, if I don't matter?
Trying is for people who things don't come easy to
Trying is for the ones who wake up early in the mornings
Trying is for the ones who straighten their hair and wear lipstick
The people who spend their holiday money on clothes and shoes
The idividuals who plan their outfits days before
So why try?
Here's a thought
They say looking nice can make one feel good
Even if it is not a sterotyical tumblr look
If one feels good in their skin
In the clothes their wearing
How their make up is done
Their confidence boost goes up
Days where you think you're hot
Makes your personality hot
You'll be happier
And soon, find motivation to do so day after day
You may never be beyonce
But you will always be you
That's something that got me out of bed
Something that helped me start my day
So here i lay, not Beyonce
The only person who I need to be good enough for is me
And I am
