I really, really don’t want to be beautiful.
I want to make people tremble.
I want to walk into a room and turn people’s heads- not because I’m pretty, but because I walked in with such confidence that people go “****.”
I want the wrong people to be scared by me, and the right people to take me as a challenge, but I want everyone to be intimidated by me.
I want to be the woman no one dares **** with.
I want to be compared to Cleopatra- not in terms of how pretty or symmetrical her face was, but because she seduces men into her bed with her mind and intellect.
I want to be compared to powerful and unstoppable forces of nature, where they aren’t powerful Because of their beauty, but beautiful because of their power.
So this is why I get insulted when you call me pretty before you call me smart.
