Yes! I am dusky and I am not ashamed of it. I see myself in a little different way because I believe that you can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.
I was told I would never make it because I’m too short.
Well, I’m still too short.
It doesn’t matter what your height is,
it’s what’s in your heart.
We maintain always a great perspective on life because we’re always looking up.
Well you have to look downwards to talk to me, so maybe now you know the difference.
And according to me ; God only lets things grow until they’re perfect. Some of us didn’t take as long as others.
“It’s not my height, but what I do that defines me.”
So at last I would love to say that I don’t give a shit about your judgement for my height.
I am skinny.
I still haven’t figured out why people feel obligated to comment on my lean stature or my eating habits or assume it’s even acceptable or welcomed.
Yet some people are so nonchalant with their statements, connecting them to irrelevant observations and buttering me up with compliments before blurting out their thoughts.
“Love your hair. Nice outfit. Oh, by the way, do you eat?”
But these comments can’t stop me. Though I love being in trend.
