Vanity


Dear Vanity,

I'm sorry I'm not everything you expected of me, I'm sorry I'm not as pretty as you expected me to be, I'm sorry I'm not tall and slender as you hoped I would be, I'm sorry I'm an imperfect person, but my truth will always shine all around me, I am unique, I am me, and that's the truth you could never dream to be.....
