"You should put some makeup."
"You should wear more beautiful dresses."
"You should keep your hair neatly."
"Do exercises. You look fat."
People be laughing at my face,
Just for the way I look.
They be giving me tips,
To look attractive, to be "beautiful"
But what if;
What if I look beautiful to me without any of those?
What if I look beautiful without makeup?
What if I look beautiful regardless of what I wear?
What if I look beautiful even with my messy hair?
What if I am more confident the way I walk?
What if I am okay with having belly fat?
What if I am always beautiful to me,
whether I am dressed or naked,
whether I am thin or chubby
whether I am smiling or glaring?
What if I am always beautiful?
Just shut up, society.
I am beautiful!
