I wake up everyday trying to be #flawless


The lipstick, the blush, the eyebrows on #fleek


The perfect symmetry is what I seek


Yet I wont allow the voice inside speak


I tell myself “Look deep inside, you’re truly unique”


From your glittering eyes to your less than perfect feet.


We all want to flawless, who wouldn’t admit it?


The swell of my lips, and the sway of my hips remind me that I am enough


My kind eyes remind me that I deserve love


My sun smothered complexion that I recoiled against, I now wear with pride


My disobedient crown of hair, accompanies my stride


For self-deprecation, I have no time


Forget ridding myself of flaws, for I know they’re wonderfully, perfectly mine.
