“Haha, I don’t have a face people remember…”
“But, but, you have a heart of gold that very few have…”
“Well, I am a plain Jane after all…”
“But, you are such a nice person!”
“No one would be physically attracted towards me”
“But, you have a great personality that shines through and draws people!”
Do I over compensate with my niceness
Because I feel I cannot afford to be sassy
Even if it is called for
Because I feel I am ugly?
Do I over compensate with my friendliness
Because I feel I cannot afford to be aloof
Even when I want to be alone
Because I am scared of being unwanted in any manner?
Do I over compensate by extremely polite
Because I feel I cannot handle scarring comments about me
Even when I feel cornered
Because I think I am not good looking enough for people to care?
When I see people treating others like trash
And still be sought after
Is it because they are good looking?
When I see people bullying someone
And still be supported
Is it because they are attractive?
When I see people walking all over others
And still be wanted
Is it because you are blinded by their beauty?
I wonder if being pretty
Gives you a gate pass to be trashy
I wonder if being beautiful
Gives you the right to be a prick of the first order
I wonder if being good looking
Gives you to be an asshole
I wonder if not being attractive enough
Corners people into being extremely nice
Even to those undeserving of the same.
I wonder if not being beautiful enough
Makes people think they won’t be heard
Even though they deserve to be.
I wonder if not being physically wanted
Reels people into a downward spiral of
Being okay with not feeling good about their bodies
BUT, I have a great personality, right?
BUT, I have a heart of gold, no?
BUT, I am always extremely nice, yes?
That’s settled then.
