See that pretty girl in the mirror there....

pin-up Pictures, Images and Photos

I'll never be tall. I'm five foot nothing.
I'll never be nice. I'm a snarky, judgmental, beastie most of the time.
I'll never be barbie. Is there a mean, nasty, dark barbie? There should be.
I'll always be strong. I'm not one of those willowy short people. I'm round even when thin. I'd be a round anorexic.
I'll always have those tattoos... because .... they are TATTOOS. And I plan more. Oh yes. More.

But there is a desperate part of me that wants to be tall with a boyish figure without scars and markings. Able to wear yoga pants and walk through the Mall tall and proud into any store. I wish sometimes I was softer. softer. softer.

AND THEN..... not so much.

Nevine: Ummmmmmm I have to say you ROCK! That was the best compliment in so many ways. we get lost sometimes, don't we? In the beauty of the words.... ? Sometimes it's best just to, well, say it as it is. THANK YOU.

You talk tall. Who wants mushy anyway?

Bravo my dear! Even being tall with a boyish figure doesn't always feel like enough. It's always something.

I like it that you didn't apologize for anything, just said what ifs! Be your own self, yes.
