ugly is my new beautiful
i prefer to be ugly.
because when you’re ugly,
you get to be whatever the hell you want to be.
and do whatever the hell you want to do.
face it, ugly girls get all the freedom.
they have no standards to perfect,
no pressures to give into,
no rules to live by.
not to mention,
ugliness is a lot more inclusive.
you can be plus size, have stretch marks,
freckles, acne, blemishes, tattoos, piercings and more,
and still be included in ugly’s definition.
but my favorite part about being ugly
is that i can buy an occasional milkshake
without beating myself up about it,
i can order those double extra large fries with my salad
and not feel guilty about it,
i can wear my favorite sweatpants multiple times
and not feel outcasted,
i can wear little to no makeup
without feeling inadequate,
and best of all,
i can be myself without
feeling ashamed of who i am.
i do not want to be beautiful
if it means ridding myself of me.
that is why i prefer ugly.
that is why ugly is my new beautiful.
