How to solve a puzzle

Thu, 02/26/2015 - 19:38 -- mandre

When I look in the mirror
I am disgusted

Turn
   Tilt
      Smile
         Move on

Not a piece feels right
Arms too long
Mouth too small
Hair too straight

When I look in my brain
I am disgusted

Think
   Read
      Study
         Move on

Not a piece feels right
No motivation
No intelligence
No talent

When I look at my life
I am disgusted

Change
   Fix
      Touch
         Move on

Not a piece feels right
Not responsible
Not acceptable
Not normal

Move on

When I look at where I came from
I am

Inspired

Growth
   Love
      Acceptence
         Moved on

The pieces come together
I am strong
I am valuable

I am me
 

And only I know what that picture is

This poem is about: 
Me
