Happiness



I am sick of hating myself.
It seems like as soon as I begin to like who I am
And what I look like,
Someone tries to change that.
And a lot of the time,
I let it happen.
But not anymore.
I deserve to be loved
For who I am.
I deserve to love who I am.
I deserve to be happy.
And I'm gonna be.
I'm gonna wear a smile
And confidence
Even if I have to design it myself.
I no longer will let anyone
Take away my happiness.
