Poem – They Say

They say:

Change your hair

Make it silky smooth

Nothing out of place

I say:

I am who I am. I am beautiful.

They say:

Change your body

Lose weight

Less is more

I say:

I am who I am. I am beautiful.

They say:

Put make up on your face

Hide those pimples

Pluck those hairs

I say:

I am who I am. I am beautiful.

They say:

Change your clothes

Stop wearing what makes you comfortable

Beauty is pain

I say:

I am who I am. I am beautiful.

They say:

Smile even when you aren’t happy

No one wants to know how you feel

Play the game

I say:

I am who I am. I am beautiful.

They say:

Stay quiet unless you can agree

No one wants your opinions

Change your personality

I say:

I

Am

Who

I

Am.

I

Am

Beautiful.
