Picky and Powerful


I am the ugly sister. These are the words I can’t escape. I cannot escape the rejection, or the hate. I am the one that no one comes to claim. My sister says the muffin top will go away, that I need to work harder. There is always that girl, on the TV, in the magazine that everyone watches. I am envious of that woman, I want to be powerful. I want the boys to follow me around, I want to be hard to get, not because no one wants me but because I don't want them. I want my power to be mine, I don't want to be owned by some man, I want to be me. I want to be my power. I have started a personal battle with myself, I will achieve my goals. I envisage a person taller, more beautiful than anyone around. That will be me, picky and powerful.
