RDP Tuesday: DIVERTICULITIS
Clean, pure, shiny
I always wanted to be a white girl
any white girl
because I thought they were all
better then me, prettier then me, sexier then me, smarter then me.
That’s what the pictures in the magazines said.
I still feel that way and when I catch those feelings bubbling to the
surface of my skin
I try to tell myself it will be okay
but I know I am lying.
In my eyes, I will never be clean, pure, shiny- or white
like the goddesses in the magazines are.
