her stoutness defined her
as if height equals person
slightly crooked on her feet
when dancing to music a little too loud
yet she smiled all the same
no one ever called her beautiful
just 'freak' or 'ugly girl'
she saw beauty in her ugliness
even if everyone else shuddered
it wasn't enough
laying broken on her bedroom floor
she remained too far from perfect
