Why Should I Be Sorry?

I'm sorry if you think that I have nothing to say

I'm sorry if you think that because I am blond I have an empty head

I'm sorry if you think that because I wear makeup I do it because I don't value myself

I'm sorry if you think that because I don't want to run a mile that I'm not strong

I'm sorry you think that because I am outgoing I am a flirt

 

I have everything to say

I am smart and blond not afraid to show it

I wear makeup because I want to, not because of insecurity, I know I am beautiful

I am strong both inside and out, I just hate running

I am an extrovert and I will not hide that

 

I'm sorry for you because you think these things the second you see me

But I am NOT sorry for who I am

and why should I be?

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
