I'll continue being me...

by Em   Sep 22, 2016


Some days I look up to the skies
and I wish like I never have before;
to be skinnier, taller, prettier even happier
then I realise there's no point anymore....

...because if I'm loved then so be it;
as it'll be for me being my crazy, little self.

So why should I change for anyone?

Someone's out there, (you'll see)
searching for somebody like me.

    Judging Comment:

    Though this is a short write it is very much filled with passion and heart. The use of ellipsis between the first and second stanza is interesting and incredibly powerful for being so subtle. The author's voice is clear, concise, and extremely calm considering the topic - which works out well. Something about this style and format screams "hi-light me in the weekly contest!" and that is exactly what it deserves. Nicely penned and creatively styled.

    Em, don't ever change! At one time or another we all wish we could be taller, thinner, cuter, whatever. But, then we wouldn't be us and that would be tragic. You are a special, giving, loving person who someone would be truly lucky to be a part of your life. Hugs-

    You are a beautiful person inside and out. One day your Prince Charming will come along and sweep you off your feet. Everyone has a soul mate waiting for them you just tend to find them when you least expect them. Milly x

    Hello Em,

    First- I just wanna say that you are a mix of beauty and talent.

    Second- this is a beautiful piece Em. Change is normal Em , it doesn't mean that you want to be someone that is not you. for me, as a fashion consultant, my term for that is " improvement".

    Third-
    "Someone's out there, (you'll see)
    searching for somebody like me."

    You are right . Someday, someone will see you, the extraordinary you

    keep smiling Em,

    Dear Em, you are a wonderful and beautiful person and no matter what we have endured in our past will define us. Please remain true to yourself and never change for anybody other then yourself. If people can accept you for who and what you are you don't need them in your life. This truly touched my heart and hugs and all the very best to you
