9.28.12

the girl is six,

maybe seven,

walking with her mum.

"look!" she points.

"i wanna look like her

if i grow up!"

the girl she points to

puts on a smile.

inside she thinks,

"why would anyone want

to be like me?

i'm broken.

i'm nothing.

i hurt.

little girl, please

don't ever be like me."
