Beautiful Disaster


They say
“That's not very lady-like”
And condemn me
For being me.
They tell me to be
An individual
But they want me to be
An individual
Like everyone else
But I'm not
And I don't pretend to be
I won't pretend to be
I'm sorry that
I will never be the lady
You'd like me to be
But you've got to understand
I hope that you can see
That even though
I'm not a lady
I'm just as beautiful
Being me
