A Girl Too Perfect For The World

by ShaunaMarie   Aug 5, 2007

Natural blonde hair falls perfectly in place
Framing a face that is round and freckled
Green eyes
One word to sum it all up: Beautiful
Piercing eyes stare back at me
Telling me I'm jealous [Because I am]
63 frames filled with reminders
Whispering "You'll never be like her"
63 pictures of a girl who is too perfect
Wandering through the album I find myself asking
"Why can't I be more like her?"
She's skinny, perfect proportions
A personality to match the looks; AMAZING
She tells herself she's not pretty
[She must be blind]
Someone should sue fathers like mine
For telling daughters like me
That they're "The prettiest girl in the world"
World-wide title
I guess even fathers lie because
Standing next to her I'm nothing
I'm the shadow in the background
I'm the one telling myself
I'll never be skinny
I'll never be beautiful
I'll never be like her
Even if I put on her clothes
And spend every minute with her
I'll never become prettier
She's just too perfect...

    Damnit Shauna!
    You ARE beautiful!

    I mean, hell. Maybe not "classical", or something shitty and phony like that, but you are, hun. You really are.

    And it doesn't take a god damn photographer's camera to figure it out.
    So take those silly thoughts and shove 'em up somewhere the sun don't shine...[[haha, much...]]

    I love you.

    Is this true? I'm not one to give advice, for reasons I'm not going into, but don't compare yourself to someone else your whole life, I don't know anything about you but I'm positive anyway that you are wonderful in yourself...
