Unperfect

She couldn’t fit the standard of society

So she stopped trying to be it’s impossible beauty

She walked lighter and judged herself less

She didn’t care if others thought she was a mess

She no longer waited to be called beautiful

She was unperfect and for her, this was more acceptable

Dictated Beauty 

I want to cry, I want to hide

I want to be where I’m alone

Where no one can hurt me

The media, the TV, they tell and show you things of what beauty should be

And I am a fool enough to believe them

I am blinded

I do not see myself.
I try to fit in but I just can’t

Or maybe I never wanted to

But it hurts when you try to stand up for yourself

While their boots of shaming are keeping you to the ground.
So I wish for days of alone time

With no one to tell me I’m not worth it

I try and heal the scars before they start creating new one’s again.

My knees feel the tension

I almost buckled 

My heart leapt from my throat 

I half cried and half chuckled

I told myself I had to start somewhere

And now is as any good of a time

So I closed my eyes and there I was

I took the chance

Self

To discover myself
To find myself
To learn to be by myself
To accept myself and love me as me

I am happier, healthier, prettier
More confident
The best of me

I looked at myself in the mirror

And said,

I’m pretty

I’m strong

I’m confident

I’m fine the way I am

No need to be a size two

Don’t want to conform with what society demands

I’m fine the way I am

That’s what I see

When I looked at myself in the mirror

I want to be like the one’s on TV

Like the one on the magazine

 

I want to be beautiful

Be called as one

Be treated as one

 

I want to be skinny

Fit small tight jeans

And be looked at differently

 

I want to be

Someone slim and slender

Someone healthy and radiant

Someone…other than me

Him I’ve Fallen

He’s walking as if on air

He’s full of glamour and grace

and bursting with utmost confidence

He takes time to listen and he listens very well

His eyes are kind and you can’t help but fall into them

His smile is genuine,

his honest and kind

All this he is and all this he’s not

for if he were true or simply even real

he’d only break my heart

Reflections of the Mirror

mirror mirror on the wall

I see a girl who’s not so tall

she’s not as pretty as can be

nor is she as elegant or attractive

her eyes are too small; her nose not as high

her hair is always unruly

her cheeks too chubby

her hips too wide

no curves to compliment

 

she cries in silence and in whisper

SMASH! goes the mirror

if only she can

she’s no Snow White,

no sleeping beauty like Aurora

no beauty like Belle

more like a beast

…..or worst

 

the mirror on the wall

she wish that it would fall

it paints a picture undesirable

its reflections show a girl, vulnerable

 

but if the mirror could only reply

it would tell the truth, not a lie

it would tell her she is fair, fairest of all

inside and out

and that is without a doubt

do not compare yourself to others

it would say

for everyone is unique, including you

you grow more beautiful

day by day

if you look at the otherside of the mirror

you’ll see what is true, what is real

 

reflections, refractions

depends on what you want to see

or what you wish to see

it reflects the best or the worst

depending on which side

you want to see

 

mirror mirror on the wall

I hope to see what you see

the eyes that see

what’s real; what’s beautiful

in me

 

Take Flight

Criticisms come everyday

don’t let this get in your way

they’ll pull you down, but just take the shot

don’t back down and give it all you’ve got

go for the win, with all your might

you know you can do it, it’s time to take flight

It’s hard, I know

don’t hold the pain inside, let it show

you don’t have to pretend to be so strong

we all make mistakes, we can afford to be wrong

but at the end of the tunnel, there’s a light

spread your wings and take flight

Don’t listen to what others say about you

they just hate you for being true

you’re okay the way you are, you’re unique

be proud, be heard, time for you to speak

don’t be pushed around, stand up and fight

boost your self-confidence, go ahead and take flight

Challenges come and lessons are learned

you may be calloused but maturity you’ve earned

don’t be afraid to take the risk

changes come fast, quite a brisk

always remembeer to do what is right

and don’t be afraid to take flight
