Fashioning my Body


I struggle with the society,

Feeding my mind with the right thing

Walking through the high street daily,

Feeds my eyes with varieties

Such variety, most I don’t deem appropriate

Because my self-esteem is at stake and paramount

I choose, critically analyse before

It goes on my body

I walk passed people on my way out

And their expressions define my purpose

I wholly accept constructive criticism

To live clean in this present culture

Daily I’m exposed to various cultures and styles

But I’m not forced to accept them

I do not desire to be like my peers

But desire to stand-out

Partly, my integrity is reflected in my appearance

Body covering is my priority

And looking good is my pride and dignity

Fashion defines me but does not make me
