Stop Pretending


 by Esperanza M

Stop pretending girls are ethereal beings instead of humans.

Stop feeling grossed out by nature.

Stop with your ridiculous expectations.

We have body hair, stretch marks, scars and birth marks.

We have biological functions and needs,

Blood pours out of ourselves once a month for days.

We are humans.

We are living beings.

Our bodies do what they’re supposed to do.

Get used to it.
