You don’t like my natural hair?

I don’t care

My naps suit me.

You don’t like my worn out shoes?

I don’t care

They get me where I need to go.

You don’t like what I wear?

I don’t care

I’ll adorn them well.

My acne? You don’t like those either?

I don’t care

Those are my beauty marks baby.

My nose and lips are too big for you?

The bigger the better I always say

Because God made me this way.

Full of flaws that’s what I am to you.

I don’t care

My flaws make me flawless.
