“Ugly”

what if I’m not scared anymore?
what if I leave my house
each morning
feeling ugly and free
and if I run into someone
who might recognize me
I do not hide

but I greet them with a smile
and a confidence that knows
I am the same person
that I was when I posted

that 38th try at a selfie

that I edited for hours
covered in filters that I cannot hide
behind in public
because my appearance
does not define me

MY APPEARANCE DOES NOT DEFINE ME

my appearance does not define me
anymore
