Unsure of Myself

Sometimes I feel pretty

Sometimes I feel ugh

Rarely do I feel sexy

Often I just need a hug.

At times I ooze confidence

Mostly I just shy away

I kind of like my bit of independence

But not all days are good like today.

I look in the mirror and often say, “meh”

But everyday I’m learning to love my ordinary face until I say, “oh yeah”.

Allowed

You’re allowed to be lazy

You’re allowed to take time

You’re allowed to think of yourself first

Or be selfish every once in a while.

You’re allowed to find the calm and hide from the chaos

You’re allowed some alone time

Or simply just lie back and do nothing.

You are allowed to slow down

To simply take time for yourself.

Like Balloons

Like balloons I am colourful outside

But sensitive and fragile inside.

Playful, captivating, alluring

Also intelligent, insensitive, and all too caring.

Like balloons, I can be fun

Yet I can also be glum.

I burst and pop out joy

And also suddenly deflate and be annoyed.

I can be a pop of red or a subtle green

But also be blue and gray and in between.

I can be as put together like a bouquet,

But also, like balloons I often float away.

I found a letter addressed to me

I read it slowly and carefully

It said,

“Hey beautiful! Remember you are beautiful…

In every single way

No matter what you feel each day.

Do not let the scale’s number or the clothing size define you.

You are wonderful and beautiful despite what some other people might say…

Despite what you might say to yourself.

You’re not perfect but you are unique so stop trying to fit in.

Be you

Be bold yet simple

Be delicate but strong

Be your awesome you!

There will be people who will put you down.

Society will try to change you to fit the norm.

But remember, you are loved and should learn to love yourself.

Most of all, remember that I love you.”

The letter ended and it was signed by me.

Fix Me

I cried in silence

I didn’t want anyone to know.

Not that no one cared

I just thought they wouldn’t understand.

They may think I’m fickle

They may think I just want to be noticed.

So I say nothing

Pretend I’m fine

Fake a smile

And laugh a lie

But I’m broken and I know I need to fix myself

Scales

I stepped on the weighting scale and I looked up

Afraid of what I’ll see when I look down as the weight may not have dropped.

I crossed my fingers and even my toes

Hoping to end a bit of my woes.

Slowly I looked down, praying the scale would be good to me

And then!

I Hide

I hide behind fake laughter

I hide behind half meant smiles

I hide my self esteem

Tuck it all away never knowing when it will be put to use.

I hide my scars

I hide my incompetencies

I hide everything that is wrong with me because society only wants perfection.

I hide sadness

I hide struggles

No one wants to deal with that.

I hide myself until I’m no more,

Hidden and wasting away.

Insecurity

You get to fit clothes easily,

You get to be called pretty.

You get to be fine and dandy,

You get to be dolled up, lovely.

You get to be all fine and sexy,

While I’m just plain, fat, and flimsy.

I do not want to fill my thoughts with envy.

I don’t want to hate or be angry.

I guess there’s no one else to blame but me

But I hope you stop making me feel so ugly.

We are all insecure in some ways. It’s bad enough that we think ourselves low, let’s not make others feel this way. Spread LOVE. ❤️

Get Out

I’m in that place…of worry and woe again

I need to get of here

Help me get out of here

Alone Tonight

Alone with the stars tonight

I hear the echoes of the clear night sky

They whisper to me

While I sing silently to their beauty
