Sometimes I wish I was the sexy girl that turns every head at the bar. The ones with voluptuous curves and perfectly coiffed hair and flawless makeup who are polished to perfection. The ones who walk around with confidence oozing from their pores. I'm not that woman and it would be foolish of me to ever pretend I could be. I am the nerd. The one who giggles and dances around grocery stores to whatever tune is being played. I'm the girl with messy hair. The one who hasn't a clue how to apply makeup. The one who prefers chucks over heels. The one with torn jeans and scars that tell a hundred stories. I'm the girl with a hot cup of coffee in one hand and an old book in the other. I'm the girl who finds comfort in between the pages and along the spine of a book. The one who appreciates the smaller things in life and who can find beauty in overlooked details and relish in the little wonders of life. I'm an old soul with a touch of a new one.
So, no I'm not the sexy girl at the bar or the girl you write poetry about. Sometimes I wish I was that girl but then again I wouldn't be me and after all of these years, I finally like being me.
