"Just Like Me"
Written by Salkis Re
I tried to beso many things in what has been my little life.
Went from short hair to long,
with pigtails and braids,
but nothing would feel quite right.
I couldn't decide if I should be like them
or just live satisfied with myself..
So I piddled about
for so many years
assuming I should have been someone else.
Then I looked in the mirror one faithful day,
And stared until the tears came.
I saw big bright eyes and a cute fleshy nose
and caramel lips that hatred couldn't claim.
I saw my goodness and the nature of my love staring back at me.
And blushed when I looked into my own eyes
overwhelmed at what I finally see.
Embracing in totality of what I am
and not an ounce more of what I cannot truly be.
And it would be nice if your motive was to expand my love
because you just like me for me..
Thank you for checking out my shop!
