Self Esteem

feature me
as the girl next door

the anyone and everyone
you never stop to consider.

benefit me
with a common face,
average clothes, have me
wear a plain shape.

pass over me
like you would
a crack in the sidewalk

discard of me
like you would

just don't
(whatever you do)

put me on a pedestal

don't shelve or frame me

because I have always
been afraid of heights

of falling
