‘That Girl’
By: Erin Elizabeth Casey

I would wonder “Why am I not like ‘that girl’?”
She is so pretty, tall, thin and tan
I’m sure she is always smart
I’m sure she is ideal

I would wonder “Why am I not like ‘that girl’?”
She is so gorgeous blonde, bold, and beautiful
I’m sure she is always funny
I’m sure she is faultless

I would wonder “Why am I not like ‘that girl’?”
She is so fashionable, fabulous, and fantastic
I’m sure she is always graceful
I’m sure she is perfect

I no longer wonder “Why am I not like ‘that girl’?”
Yes she is attractive, amazing, and awesome
Yes I’m sure she is always kind
But I’m also sure she is not real

For ‘that girl’ exists only my mind
She is a figment of my imagination
Created in an effort to foster self hatred
But I will not compare myself to ‘that girl’ or ‘any girl’
for we all possess each of the things above
In our own way
We all have value beyond our looks or our brains
And no one is perfect
For without Christ we’re all covered in stains
