My dad said I look like Marilyn Monroe
I did not agree

My hair is not even close
To a stunning white blond

Nor is my hair fierce short
Or does it curls

And I did not wore
Deep red lipstick that night

But my dad insisted
That I looked like her

My eyes sparkled
Which showed gratitude

And when I looked back
At photos of that night

I realized
I wore her smile

So wide and honest
That made me like her
