#Beautiful

Location

#Hi.

I'm trying to act like I'm invisible because I know that you can see that I'm not #perfect.

But I know that if you could see the real me that is not my blotchy skin or curvy frame, you would be #shocked.

But forget it.

You would never be #interested...

 

#Hi again.

Well I know you probably don't care but I'm into #books and #poetry and #literature...

But-

Oh.

You like her.

You like her because she's #flawless-

With her perfect skin and her raven hair and her #selfies that make her look like a goddess out of a Percy Jackson book.

#Cool.

And even though she's #flawless and I'm clearly #flawed, I have to admit that she really is #beautful, and everything that I'm not.

She's like a bowl of Froot Loops and I'm a box of Cheerios.

She's like #Beyonce and I'm the rest of Destiny's Child.

I am the Tito to her Michael Jackson.

I am the nothing to her everything.

 

#Hey

What?

Oh- Oh wow.

So as it turns out, she was a #fake-

A beautiful, perfect, #fake.

She had no personality no spirit, no pride-

Her skinny face and slender frame reflected her emptiness inside.

And then there's me.

#me.

I wear #glasses, but not ironically,

I have a round face and once had braces on my teeth.

I like #movies and #books and #television,

Mostly because I'm a self-classified #geek.

And sometimes I feel like make-up wold make me #pretty,

But then I remember that beauty is really only a state of mnd.

So while her #selfies on Instagram may have been #beautiful,

The nerd in me knew all along that

Transformers was right;

Being #flawless or even #beautful, is truly

More than meets the eye.

 

#So yeah.

I, this nerdy, geeky, awkward mess, am:

Absolutey, positively-

#flawless.
