One Or The Other - Poem by Amber Millar

I recently discovered a choice,
An ultimatum of sorts, I suppose,
It's my prerogative, I have to decide,
Whether I want beauty or brains,
I can't have both,
I chose brains,
I don't want to die alone,
But I'd rather have knowledge than a head filled with sawdust,
I want the one I love to see that I'm good enough,
But, for him, beauty's only skin deep,
You have to have a beautiful face,
And a figure like Pamela Anderson,
To even be considered,
So I'll die alone,
Hugging a book,
Quoting Shakespeare,
'To be or not to be? That is the question, '
We were not to be,
I answered my own question,
In my life, it's books not boys,
And that's the way it'll stay,
Brains not beauty,
One or the other...
