never good enough


I'll never be bulimic model thin,

Catwalk-cloned, pound-purging,

Shallow souled versions,

Of the high society, low class

Pill popping sad selves they are.

Or made into their plastic-perfect,

And $calpel-Sculpted,

Body-lifted falseness.

Never be that proverbial '10'

Who are much more minus,

Than that of a plus.

Or be an object of

Vanity filled, male desire.

I'll never be good enough

For man's socially-tainted view

Of fake air-brushed,

photo-shopped perfection,

In this perverted world of

Porn-minded mentality

And morally bereft souls.

But damn if any man

Out there, thinking like that,

Will ever be good enough

For this perfectly imperfect,

Full-hearted, honest, giving

Loving to a fault, me!
