i am enough

By Elisabet Salas Alvarado

You’d be prettier if…

The words have been echoing

on repeat for years

On a constant loop

With a different ending

Suggestions and tips

Freely given

Never asked for

But I want to shatter that record

I want to tell it

That my pretty is not perfect

Nor will it ever be

but also that it is not theirs

To possess or to dictate

because

it is mine alone.

and I declare

That I am already good enough.

 

i am enough
