i am always too much of this

or never enough of that

pray tell, what is the recipe

for the perfect girl?

a dash of sweetness,

an ounce of femininity?

what measurement of confidence

is correct to offset

the tenderness?

do i need an extra pinch

of salt? is there one flavour

that is universally agreed upon?

and please, tell me your opinion,

men of whom i have no interest,

is my hair blonde enough,

and are my cheeks pink enough

to sate your greedy tastebuds?

what is the right way to be,

and why can nobody teach me?
