My Perfect Me

My Perfect Me 5”3. 134 lbs. Slim. Blue eyes. Long healthy blonde hai- This doesn’t feel right. While I am unhappy with myself and I do wish that I had all of those qualities, this poem would completely contradict my last. My last poem was about body positivity and empowerment while this one started off being about all the things I wish I could change about my body. My last poem stated that you have one body and you should love it and “fat” is only a descriptive word. So, let me try this again: My Perfect Me: Revised 5”5. 210 lbs. Fat. Brown eyes. Short, unhealthy, untamed blonde hair. And most importantly: beautiful. -Maddie MacLeish
