Better Me

What I'd expect to see in a better me

That would be to be free

Not just any kind of free, but the freedom to be me

No makeup kind of selfies that will get one-hundred likes

Messy hair and acne to show the world

That nobody needs to be filtered to show beauty

My beauty that I show will be a better version of me

 

What I'd expect to see in a better me

That would be flawless

Not just any kind of flawless, but the kind one could see

When lost in the eyes and a smile of a real person

Whom will not be fake nor caked with jewelry

No fancy clothes labeled "chic"

My beauty that I show will be a better version of me

 

What I'd expect to see in a better me

That would be a girl filled with confidence, poise, and purity

Not a girl smiling a fake smile to make her face look proportional

I will see a girl with gapped teeth and with uneven dimples

Many would think of snide sayings or "burn" jokes to tell their friends

But being me, the only type of human God created, I will strunt the comments away

My beauty that I show will be a better version of me
