I had meant to include this with my earlier post.
By Jessica Scott
I may not be tall or thin.
I may not be beautiful in that supermodel way.
I may not have mountains for breasts,
And my legs may not work,
In fact, I may not have legs or arms at all.
My face might be disfigured,
And I might have to wear glasses.
My teeth could be crooked,
And my hair might be missing.
My nose might be too
Large, wide, pointy, bumpy, short…
I might not speak correctly.
I may be
Just plain big.
I may be too round,
Too much of something that goes against your standards of beauty.
But do not underestimate me.
What you view as flaws
Are my greatest strengths,
And who are you to judge me?
You have no idea who I am…
Eccentric, edgy, easy-going,
Natural, noble, nonpareil,
Optimistic, open-minded, original,
Unadulterated, unequalled, undaunted,
Gifted, gentle, gallant,
Heterosexual, homosexual, happy.
I am so much more than you will ever see
If you only look at my appearance.
