So what if I’m not stick thin
or deliciously curvy?
So what if I don’t have perfect skin
or don’t wear contacts instead of glasses to see?
So what if I shower at night
and own a stuffed animal or two?
So what if I sleep with the tv’s light
and like to visit the zoo?
I don’t need your applause
for me to take a bow.
I don’t even need to pause
or care about your raised brow.
Because, can’t you see?
I’m happy just being me.
