Am I Ugly?

They look, they stare

They wonder, they dare

They ask me why I’m still single

It sometimes makes me feel worthless, hence, I don’t mingle

They talk, they whisper

Words can hurt, they can blister

And even without a word I feel they’re saying smugly

You’re still single because you’re ugly

She dyed her hair black to be amongst many

She kept her mouth shut so no one would see

She kept her head still so no one could hear

She wanted to fit in.
She asks herself why people have to be so self centered

Why people care too much of how they look

Couldn’t they just look into what really matters,

Like the heart and the soul?
Why do we get caught up with ourselves?

Why is it so hard to be just herself?

Why did she have to change?
So she tries to fit in amongst the sea of everyone

Where she once was a someone

She’ll ultimately become a no one.

Sickness

Sometimes physical, sometimes emotional
Other times mental

What’s certain is though is that it is rampant
Be the weather cold, dry, hot, snowing….
Sickness is everywhere

Your kind of sickness is physical
Mine is emotional
Others…..well others is a mixture but mainly mental

They put others down
They find content, or so they think, when others are in pain
Or undergoing hardship

Society has a sickness that is eating it up slowly
And most people don’t even know about it

I’m in love with you

Is what he said

Yet he did not know a thing about her
He was in love with only her outside looks
A pathetic way to label the so called “love”

Hal Was Lucky

She’s pretty

Because she’s skinny

She’s pretty, but

That’s what they say when she’s fat

People judge you

Social media dictates it

And we all fall into the trap

 

He’s handsome

Because he’s well-built

He’s handsome, but

That belly is too much for my taste

 

But a person is beautiful not because they are physically

They are beautiful because of how they treat people

If only we could see inner beauty first

Then all the drama of being a size zero would go away

Shallow Hal was given a gift

He was lucky enough to learn from it

 

You are beautiful

In every shape or size

Don’t let others tell you otherwise

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

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
