Different

You say that I'm not good enough

because I don't wear my hair in perfect curls 

You say I'm not good enough

because I don't wear pretty lipstick and faulse lashes

You say I'm not good enough

because i have a face full of piercings

You say I'm not good enough because my hair isn't natural

You say I'm not good enough

because i don't wear the latest trends

You say I'm not good enough

because I wear ripped up jeans and band T-shirts and

my eye makeup is too black, like a raccoon

You say I'm not good enough

because I don't match societies standers of beautiful and "normal

You think I'm not good enough

because I'm different

and proud to be

Simply because I'm not like you

the one who judges others on their appeirents and lifestyle

I'm proud to be different because that makes me, me
