I do it for me

When I carefully apply my mascara,
When I decide to wear my hair free,
When I decide to repaint my nails,
I do so only for me.

When I wear a smile,
When I shed a few pounds,
When I do things regarding appearance;
It's not for the benefit of others around.

So what if I'm wearing new jeans?!
So I hear you like my new scent?
Well I'm not disclosing the store I got it from,
Nor will I tell you how much I spent.

Yes I sometimes wear high heels,
Sometimes I wear my fluffy boots,
I go for whatever I fancy that day,
Oops I forgot to touch up my roots.

Don't think I do it for attention,
Please, I don't set out to impress!
Why should I be owned by others opinions;
On how I talk or how I dress?

I have my own unique style,
Individuality is what I'm about.
Darling, judging me I don't need to blend in,
Because I was obviously born to stand out.
