Fancy Up

I’m not opposed to fancy.

It looks quite intriguing to me,

On others.

I’ve discovered

That the more I try to fancy up

The more frustrated I am in life.


I am-

Plain and simple

(Does not mean dull or without thought.)

No frills

(Means the substance is all it needs to be.)


(Just straight forward.)

When the world wants embellishment

I am lost.

Fancy and me

Can be friends.

But that’s all.

And we are both okay with that.

    I think there’s a lot to be valued in a woman who doesn’t require accessories to be whole! You’re the “real deal,” Colleen, and that’s the best!
