#PhenomenalFlaws

Location

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.
