I’m Still Me

by B. Diane Landon

I’m still me.
With or without makeup,
I’m still me.

Inspiration image

I’m still me.
With or without hair,
With a hat or not.

I’m still me
With or without breasts,
In a bikini or not.

I’m still me
Fat or not,
Tubes attached or not,
I’m still me.

But I would like a pretty dress to wear.
That’s just me.
