Falling Short


I fall short of everything

I lack a chest

A butt

I lack height


I lack everything





I'm uglier than monsters

My teeth are crooked

My eyebrows thick and bushy

My nose too big

My acne all over my chest


I'm too short

My hair too wavy

My depression covers me like a blanket

Who would want a girl like me?

No one that's who


I fall short of so much

I hate myself

My family hates me

I'm just falling short

        You sound like just my kind of a gal! A true and genuine one-off.
