“In My Eyes” & “Girls, Girls, Girls”

“In My Eyes” & “Girls, Girls, Girls”

Abbie Staggs


In My Eyes

I look in the mirror and all I see
Is me, is me
A girl I don’t want to be
I see “large and in charge”
I see “skin and bones”
I see “freckles”
I see “acne”
I see “wrinkles”
In my eyes,
I see everything, other than the good in me
Every flaw screams at me, claws at me
Why me, why me?
I look in the mirror, and now I see
Me, me
A girl I  A M

I see “strong”
I see “compassionate”
I see “loving”
I see “hardworking”
I see b e a u t y
Undeniable, true beauty
In my eyes

 

Girls, Girls, Girls

Girls, Girls, Girls, “that’s not ladylike”

Girls, girls, girls, “aren’t you cute?”

Girls, girls, girls, “smile.”

Girls, girls, girls, do not smile.

Girls, girls, girls, you are   a l i v e

Girls, girls, girls, you are   h u m a n

Girls, girls, girls, you will   t h r i v e

Girls, girls, girls, fight for your right

Girls, girls, girls, persist

Girls, girls, girls, do not smile.
