Brilliant imperfections

“Barbie’s disfigured. It’s fine to play with her just as long as you keep that in mind.”

― Lena Dunham, Not That Kind of Girl


I am a women

A gender of humanity

Made of flesh and biology

I have organs, skin, and hair


Alter the hair on your skin

Paint your face

Cover your scents

Polish your nails


Why should I hide my human-ness?

I am made up of brilliant bits of thought

Hair on my head should be long, but on my legs gone?

I am not ashamed, I didn’t put them there


I will wear lipstick

And dance in skirts

And put flowers in my hair

But for me, not for you

    1. Yes, exactly. This poem was inspired by a guy commenting sarcastically on the hair on a part of my body that we don’t even need to remove!
      Thanks again Jane <3
