I’m Not the Kind

Thanks to Noelle Grimes

 

I am not pretty

Not the kind at least

That would stop men in their tracks

To stare and long and dream

For me

My body is not slim

Not the kind at least

That lets go

of a layer

of fat

My mind is not brilliant

Not the kind at least

That earns a stellar four-point

or the role

of valedictorian

My mouth is not pure

Not the kind at least

That never utters

Words good girls

Should not say

I have little to offer

Little to gain

Except this:

Will You look on a tender heart

And count it as eternal beauty?
