Second Choice

Document
Cover Image

I am not the girl
who would be your first choice
but I deserve a second glance.

I am not the girl
that you can ever mold
because I am rock, not clay
and I will not submit to you.

I am not the girl
who can spend time on a pedestal
because life is too clumsy and awkward
to balance precariously.

I am not the girl
who will ever be enough.
I will always be
too fat
too thin
too tall
too short
too quiet
too loud
too smart
too dumb
too much
but never enough.

I am not the girl
you want
and probably not even the girl
you need


And I am not the girl
who will settle for
a guy like you.
