I may not have a thigh gap

or blonde hair

or blue eyes


I may not be a size 0

or have a tiny waist

or a perfect figure


I may not have lots of money

or be surrounded by friends

or have any friends at all


But when I look in the mirror

all I see

is perfection


Because the definition of perfection

is me.

The author's comments:

I feel the the beauty standards for females of today are skewed by what media shows us. Women of color, women of size, are all just as beautiful as the women we see in common tv ads and should be proud of it, despite what Vogue tells us. Love yourself like no one else will.
