The Wonder of Franklin Stein

The Wonder of Franklin Stein

Nice to meet you Darling,
Franklin Stein.
But you can call me Franky
My aim is to become one
Of the seven wonders of the world.
Frankly I’ve always been beautiful…
Even before the surgeries.
The first thing I cut was
My nose.
I can’t lie,
After that I couldn’t stop.
When you’re in the spotlight,
You have to try things out.
I think I would have reached perfection
If it wasn’t for the change of fashion.
Frankly I’ve always been beautiful…
Even before the surgeries.
I had beautiful eyes
And a beautiful heart you know…
All I ever wanted really…
Was to be loved.
For who I am inside,
More than for the collection of my parts.
The surgeon is good though…
All my scars are invisible.
But I still feel like there’s a part of me missing;
I still feel that I’m not enough.
