I am not what "It" looks like.

I am not what “it” looks like.

I wonder what it takes to please society.

I hear people brag about being “perfect”.

I see what I “should” look like.

I want to feel good enough.

I am not what “it” looks like.

 

I pretend to be confident.

I feel like I have to change.

I touch the mirror to see if what’s looking back at me is really what I see.

I worry I am not enough.

I cry from time to time.

I am not what “it” looks like.

 

I understand everyone is beautiful.

I say it’s okay when it really isn’t.

I dream what it’s like to be “perfect”.

I try not to believe what society says.

I hope that one day I’ll be accepted.

I am not what “it” looks like

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
