No Additions, No Subtractions

No additions, no subtractions, I am an ordinary woman
Simply less gorgeous than what my pictures look like
I am a woman with flaws
With acne, small eyes, and facial hair
Nothing too special about my body
Other than my frail, skinny body
No additions, no subtractions, I am an artistic woman
I draw my inspirations, and aspirations
I make change in the community with art
I release my thoughts through pencil and paper
No additions, no subtractions, I am a woman of brains
Showing my knowledge, and intellect
I crave for success
No additions, no subtractions, I have many aspirations
I am a woman who falls and tries again
Over, and over
My failure does not define me
Rather, it is my path of success
No additions, no subtractions, I am a loud woman
Speaking my mind when it is necessary
My voice echoes through the room
Flowing through each person's ears
Hearing my chitter-chatter of what is necessary and unnecessary
No additions, no subtractions, I am just an ordinary person
Letting my heart roam through the world
Expressing my thoughts in many shapes and forms
I demonstrate my small qualities In the most visual way possible

Me
