My Body


She sees a size 10 when she is really a 5

She sees a face filled with acne when there are only a few pimples on her face

She sees the beast in the mirror even though everyone tells her she is beauty

She sees hideous and is so self conscious about how she looks

She is a wallflower who wishes to stay unnoticed

She is obsessive compulsive about her weight and face

What she sees is not what everyone else sees

She sees no good on her outward and inward appearance

She wonders how anyone can learn to love a beast

She loves food but, is afraid to eat too much

She likes this guy but, she knows that he will never love her

She hate her self for not looking like the other girls

She is not blonde, tall or skinny

She looks in the mirror and fears what she sees

All she wants someone to love her

She winces when she is looked at

She cowers at the words you are are beautiful

She knows that looks are not everything

She just wants to have some confidence

People ask her what the one thing you would change is

She wants to change everything about herself  

She’s got to let it go
