Call Me Beautiful

I hate being cute.

I’m so adorable,


I’m just so freaking cute!

Cute, cute, cute!

Well you know what?

After years of hearing that,

it means nothing to me.

You might as well be saying I’m plain.

I want to hear something different.

You don’t say it as often as I’d like you to,

but when you do, at least it has meaning.

I want to be called pretty.





Maybe it’s just society and their cardboard boxes

making me feel this way,

but it doesn’t matter.

It’s still how I feel.

So change my day.

My week.

My month.

My life.

And call me beautiful.

Alone With My Thoughts

I was going through my old poetry and found this. It’s so powerful and profound to me. I wonder why I never posted it on here before. I wrote it right before I started my freshman year of college in 2011. Enjoy. :)

This is the photo that inspired me to write my first real story in the fourth grade.

This is the photo that inspired me to write my first real story in the fourth grade.

It just so happens that I come across it on Tumblr. So thank you Tumblr for bringing back what inspired me to write in the first place. (:

100 Things of Who I Am:

Every now and then, especially when I am feeling down, I write a list of everything I love about myself. I urge all of you to do so as well. Write as many or as little adjectives or nouns that can describe you. It’s a great self-esteem booster and it really shows how you (or others) perceive yourself, because sometimes people forget. Everyone needs a reminder every now and then of how truly special they are. :)
