Whom to Impress?

The author yearns to be a cheerful person and have a peaceful yet satisfying life.

Not the off-shoulder top,

mum dad won't like,

He likes decent ones,

How about a mini skirt?

People will think it's revealing,

Do I need to shave my underarms?

~whispers

This long gown shouldn't be a problem,

~whispers

No matter how you see it,

people are gonna judge because of their

tiny little rusted mind,

How about impressing yourself,

and buying yourself a treat,

Impressing others is not your job,

your job is to be happy with what you wear,

Doesn't matter the thousands of whispers,

they ain't got a better job,

It is not possible to satisfy others,

Your life

Your happiness

Your comfort

Is what matters the most

Cause you are not just a mere doll,

a Homosepian who breathes,

you are much more than what you dress up like.

I like the '~whispers' lines! Very inspired! Indeed, we are much more than our physical appearance.

Interesting poem, with a valid message.

One should feel good and comfortable, while dressing up, rather than trying to please or satisfy others.

Thank you for sharing!

Very beautifully explained judgmental behaviors, that are really toxic.

Hi Ishika, This poem conveys a good message that we should heed. We need to please ourselves first. If we go through life always worrying about what others think we can never be completely happy.
