Selling You

Let them tell you
That your hair is the wrong shade
The texture needs taming and calming
Let them say
That you need makeup to cover your scars
That the excess of your body must be hidden
Let them advise
How to talk
How to walk
How to behave
Let them suggest
What will fix you
Make you that much improved
Make you more acceptable
Allow them their voice
To tell you not to use yours
To tell you to better conform
To tell you how they think you should live
 
And then ignore them all
And be your naturally authentic self
