Rejection

Scared of rejection

Scared of judgement

I'll stare at my reflection

Every moment

 

I don't like this

I don't like that

The length of my nose

Is too big and fat

 

My body isn't curvy

My teeth aren't straight

I always notice

The things I hate

 

I'm scared of being laughed at

Scared of bullies

I realize that

I have to love myself fully

 

I'm learning to love me

No one else will

I know that they can't see

The beautiful parts of me

 

Someday I'll love myself

Give myself lots of affection

Even if I'm as small as an elf

I won't be afraid of rejection
