She is a young girlRosacea gives it awayFull of life, energy, and strong beliefsShe has a different way of looking at the worldNot to judge but to exploreShe wonders how others will look at her
Your eyes are like the ocean full of secrets someone could get lost by staring to long some people enjoy them yet some people never have yet to experience them
“I’m so proud you’re my sister,” “because you’re so beautiful!” His compliment attacked my stomach,
Dream Big and Dream Small Dont let the Failures Fall Step High and Step Low Choose the Right Path to go Succeed Now and Succeed Later Succeed when you Make Friends with Haters Live Now and Live Then
I think my life ahead in more than four or five paces. I think about the end. The finish line. It all ends in tragedy. Car crashes and infedelity. I write really sad poems when I'm missing you.
They say life is like a book of handwritte
Neither Here nor There but somewhere inbetween CHINESE AMERICAN that's the life i lead
Before the night During the day We all hide In several ways Hair in face is my way With no filter on I have many flaws face like sand and nose so tall
No filter but still a pretty picture Real story's exposed with scratches but I'd say it only makes me more richer no not in money but in wisdom buuddy let me spare you all the details that are bloody
I like quoting movies- A lot. I sometimes forget that the world Isn’t privy to my inner dialogue; If the world could hear my thoughts, it would get lost, buried,
With no filter, my face is pretty average, My voice and hair are nothing to salvage. I’m quiet and shy when around the unknown, My soul and color and pride aren’t shown. When I’m near the ones I care for most,
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. That's society That's life Where are we now? Make up Filters Editing Is this beauty? Chocolates Roses Are they cliche?
What are humans Without screens To hide the pain The scars The truth
Me, Myself, Personally… I am, the smile that stretches for miles
I've made mistakes, But they don't define me. I have regrets, But I am not what I've done. I have secrets, But they're part of my past. Come dawn, And come day.
I am a girl of a deceased dad, I am a girl of divorced parents, I am a who who wears makeup to hide the tears, I am a girl who has a filter to hide the pain. I am a girl without a filter,
*snap* An image is taken
Painted smile, feeling vileregretting the time gone
There’s this girl in the mirror… And she’s beautiful.
I am flawless With the pimple on forehead
A filter is like a mask, a mask is like a disguise, I disguise my feelings and self but why?
The real me isnt pictures you see online Or even sometimes outside. The real me is deep down Wondering if its okay to be herself or hide. The real me isnt a staright A student But doesnt mean Im not smart.
If you take away the filter The hashtags, the signs I’m left bereft of options And put simply, there am I Half-hidden in the sun But avoiding the glare You take my picture neck up
My Mind is Beautiful My mind is beautiful. An infinite universe
There is a wall up, A wall that no one can see. The wall is what hides me,
behind the makeup and smile as big as her heart there is a girl she is living in constant fear of the future her biggest fear is failing she feels helpless but she has to try
Every moment i perch myself upon that plastic seat, i wait. Every time the sting of feelings prick my eyes, i wait. Every sound that occurs to my ears, i wait.
Wake up and look in the mirror, Do you like what you see?
I’ve stopped drinking from the wishing well of health Guaranteed to keep you young and make all your wishes Come true. Despite the try my will ran dry Has I came to the realization not everything is flawless
A filter is used to hide the parts of us we don't like and enhance the parts we do. But why do we not "like" parts of ourselves? Society is always telling us to "be ourselves" and "color outside the lines,"
The world is full of imperfections.
Who am I? I am Brown Hair I am Big Brown Eyes

Skin and Bones: A Poem by Tyler Shreve-Smith
"What is it that makes you flawless?" You ask.
Every time I look at her she doesn't fail to impress me with her flawless skin her long dark hair glowing smile cute brown eyes and a real womens body
People view me as four eyes, But when I take those glasses off it’s something about those chestnut brown eyes that sucks you in. You began to take notice of this young woman’s other captivating features.
Stared in the Mirror.
Do not tear at your mirror Do not pull at your skin
A pearl, Dipped in love and frosted with perfection,
The voices in my head Laughs and stalks Mocking their way to my heart My heart has a door The key Jesus He is who opens and locks. The voices in my head Laughed and stalked
In my fantasy I can do anythingI dream, I fly, and soar through the skyThat twinkles with the mesmerising stars of the universe
Sometimes- I tremble like the fault lines,
I don't know what I want
My buck teeth are beautifulThey make me look like a bunnyMy one hidden dimple is gorgeousIt pops out when something's funnyMy pale skin radiantLike ivory pearlsMy strong assertive voice
You were a bird Free, fragile He was a vulture Cruel, devious You were a storm Somber, dark
Who am I without a filter? For the past four yeasrs, I haven't had an answer to that question I've spent so long trying to become littler I've tried to disappear which is something I probably should mention
When I walk down the street, I feel their eyes They look at me but don’t know why I used to stay in my room and hide Scared of judgments, Terrified. One day I took a glance in a glass
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Whom hold's that position? Whom is this beholder and what gave him, or her the right to set beautiful's standards. I may not have the biggest bust, but my heart is by far huge.
You're tellingus -No, you're tellingme. You're telling us indivicually.
I'm not just who you say I am,I worked hard to get where I am today.It took everything I had to just get out of bed to face difficulties.You laugh now but I am serious.
Why do girls spend sixty minutes on their make-up when they can spend five Make-up doesn't define who you are Your words and your actions Those define you because those words mean a million more
Age 13, my face was full of blemishes. Age 14, I had to get glasses. Age 15, I wanted perfect skin. Age 16, I screamed, "Screw perfection!".
Type. Just type. My fingers dangle above the keyboard, Splashing each word, verb, sentence- That comes to mind. The words are like snow to me: Soft, Delicate, And pure.
Beauty can not be defined as a physical feature ,But CAN be defined as a ...
I am writing to let you know you are not alone. No matter how romanticized the rogue in you becomes. For all my wanderlust roving dreams of distance, I am writing in hope you know your heart is not a fight club.
Many people hide their face in the bathroom mirror They dab a little bit of this and a add a litle bit of that and they just created a mask We try to prove ourselves and others that we are this beautiful flawless queen
Everybody wanna be flawless Or whatever you wanna call it
#nofilter, #selfie, #natural, #fleek Hash tags are the holy grail of most social media websites I can use them to show my followers what I'm wearing Or show them the memories that I'm sharing
Imperfections are inevitable I used to think I could change my body but I've come to terms that I can't.
The life of a young woman is boundless and untamed There is no way of telling where she will go next or who she will become The crazy twirl that destincts Who she is The girl I was years ago is gone
I wake up each day and hear About a world that is full of hurt And tears. People are dying, Children are crying; “The world’s a mess,” they say. “Human beings should just go away.”
I am beautiful.My heart is gold.My sprirt is glowing.My attitude is bold.I am beautiful.My compassion is limitless.My intellegence is vast.My love is tenderness.
I can feel my blood boil. My eyes picking out all the imperfections. Harsh criticism that makes me bleed from the inside out.
Young Responsible Educated Kindhearted And Beautiful, Inside AND Out
I look in the mirror each day and see , a strong-willed student gazing at me.
They say it all the time. "Keep it together" But what am I keeping together?
I think, therefore I am But what do I think? What am I? What am I? I am beautiful I am free I am the fearful and wonderful creature that God made me to be
I see how people are self-conscious How people try to be confident I see how society brings us down How people say hurtful things
Quadrant I avouches positivityNo matter what angle you gaze fromEvery daybreak, we wake up in the origin
My body was my battleground. My skin parted like the Red Sea, and a surge of life came flooding over me. Dusk looked like the bruises on my bones. The war between mind over matter was never ending and some days all I could do was rest.
Self-seen The strongest I've ever been A societal strain Recites lies and prompts pain But I Refuse the abuse Fight hostility with happiness And affliction with bliss To be durable
Everyone is beautiful, Perfect. Just the way they are. Some might even saw, flawless, I mean, all humans have flaws, But are flaws really flaws when it makes them who they are?
I dont know about you but I wake up flawless everyday No doubt in my mind I'm beautiful in everyway
I’m the girl who is sheltered The one who has no fun I’m the girl who was homeschooled The one who hasn’t won? High school had so much Tell me I missed out I should have stayed in school
Loud nights, ears closed, doors locked, tired floors.
The painful words escape her lips Piercing my fragile heart with every word she utters I try to not show the pain but every now and then I slip
I am perfectly flawed From my head to my toe Im not perfect and no one is But I know my worth And I'm proud of who I am and of what I do
The metamorphosis from a chasm of doubt to noting my pure beauty Was the first thing that altered when I chose to unveil my eyes from false pretenses.
Everytime I see you my heart skips a beat. Everytime I smell you my mouth waters. Everytime I touch you my fingers tingle. Everytime I kiss you I get butterflies in the pit of my stomach. Everytime I close my eyes I see you.
Everything beautiful is either immensely frail or immensely strong. Memories, frozen in time, lasting one second. Lasting a thousand seconds. They are beautiful because they are so fleeting in our minds.
I will always believe in you though we’ve never shared a word The years that pass with grains of sand only to be remembered. In your tears I’ve understood every word no one else ever heard.
Why am I flawless. This poem can end here because I can simply just say I'm flawless because I'm me. But, I don't want to leave you with any curiousity, so, here's why I'm flawles.
When I was 11, I was told to branch Out of myself, but the twigs grew in weird places. When I was 12, I sat on a fallen petal and broke a twig. It hurt.
There are no flaws with the body I wear.
"Wear pretty clothes." they said. So I did. Some I felt fat in, some I felt uncomfortable. "Try some eyeliner." they said. So I did. It looked awkward; I felt unnatural.
I am flawless because of my acne I am flawless because of my awkward facial hair I am flawless because of my crooked pinky I am flawless pretty much everywhere My flaws don't define me
She's a weed among many the only difference is her timing while others are blooming
Your upraised so high, and I am so low I upraise you so high, each and every day Each night I lower you down, like a show We complete this task, even in the gray
When I was a young child, I loved myself. I confidently strutted my polka-dot sweater and striped skirt,
Who am I and who will I become, to fall far from the family tree or be the last one? Who will accept my failures and love my flaws? Everyone loves a girl who is always less flawed.
I sit and I stare into the mirror at my chest.
If I knew what I know now, Things would be way different then they are now, no lien, no cheating, no stealing, just love, and more love in the air when it comes to people around me they down me, some people even call me ugly ,fat or just mean mug
Listen. You are as beautiful as you say you are. so do me a favor and look in the mirror. and love yourself unconditionally.
I am beautiful, I am fine, I am kind. I am naturally blonde, Pansexual, a straight A college student, and genderqueer. I am beautiful, I am fine, I am kind.
My flaws make me flawless. My freckles, usually covered by makeup, are beautiful. My natural hair, a genetic mutation, is beautiful. My curves, or most would say extra weight, are beautiful.
Behind all the filters, my pictures hold natural beauty. Behind the makeup and touch-ups, I have freckles that engulf my face. Behind the smiles, I hold back years worth of overcome struggles
Like a sunflower, I am growing. As a child I was a like a seed,
In my eyes..
“You walk funny.” These words have plagued my school experience. No one knows the reason behind this walk, They don’t know that my muscles don’t work and I’m slower than the rest
Fancy clothes, all the boys, all the shoes. Yes Girl. That sounds like the dream, everything you need materialistic things. You're so heartless it stings. Yes Girl
Can you feel it? The embellishment of my essence. Do you understand what makes him valuable? It's his thoughts combined with his actions.
I am flawless. I am so flawless...you could say that I am lawless. My feet sweep the streets and keep the people who act aweless. From being in my presence.
Every second I think, "Why couldn't life be
I am Authentic I don't need the right lightening, or the right edit to have my picture get 1,000 likes or hearts. I am Authentic
The light that shines From the inside out It's beautiful-I have no doubt I see your light It's not like mine It's brighter, stronger All the time Can you see my dulling glow?
I am a beautiful black girl. I was born with beautiful kinky hair. I walk on beautiful thick thighs and I see through beautiful brown eyes.
Discolored Skin and Acne Marks..... I am BEAUTIFUL! Stretch Marks and Scars...... I am BEAUTIFUL!
Now I may not be that size small, medium or large, honey, I know, it.
I am a Natural Beauty Them contacts, I don't need Them lashes, I won't wear That makeup it looks nice but my perfect Natural skin it don't fit right wit Because my Beauty is Natural Yes I have a Natural fro
What are filters? Filters are cover-ups, concealing the truth, Concealing the true identity to which the entity does not wish to share. They cover, so others do not see. From press, to speech, to a selfie,
What were you designed to look like? Looking at your self, in that dirty mirrior. Don't forget to bring make up with you to school, it wears of by lunch. How were you designed to feel?
My hair is frizzy, messy, and unkempt; My face is rounder than I would like it But all of those things aside and exempt I am me, and that's what makes me perfect I am not "fabulous" I'm FABUMORE
I share my story And I dream I am not what anyone expects of me I am beautiful And strong I will always stand tall You can say what you want, What you think
Each morning my face looks at me, Some days with sleep still in its eyes. And, though I like the face I see, It's time to put on my disguise. The brown eyelashes become black;
I am a beautiful woman But my mind body and soul Is confined by the powers of this intertwined worlds Of what we call social media. The filters of normal, Kentucky, slumber, and rise
Beauty lies within me, No filter aka "No Filly",
Beauty is only skin deep I once was told A beautiful face could carry a heart of cold But what about the others who shine like gold ? Not defined as beautiful in the next teen magazine.
What is it that you see when you see me?
I have so much to do and so much to say And I know that if I was able to remove that one thing from my chest that one thing that keeps the light in
I'll take my crooked finger and point into the mirror reflecting straight off of me, I must've taken a step closer since I vivdly remember what I can still see. I used my hands to domesticate my wildly untamable hair,
Time after time I am told not to wake up from the pill induced coma that they put me in, Supposedly brainwashed and made to think this round peg could never fit in to a square opening. But I woke up like this.
I want to be somewhere where I can be beautiful to myself,
I look in a mirror and see nothing I take a picture and see a plan face Only when adding a filter will I feel like something When I add filter I hide the dark tint on my skin Making it my very own filter
In life with #NoFilter, My expressions may seem bitter. From a less-white smile to acne, A filter may cover what others shouldn't see. However, In a world with #NoFilter, my ideal traits show-
I have been born.
"I am Flawless" I mean I guess....I didn't always think so though. The way my stretch marks curve over my lower. The baby tooth I have that refuses to come out.
Aye, that natural beauty tells a story show my power and courage to not be like others Show off myself because theres only one of me with added enhancers we are all the same
Beautiful. Me? Strangers say so. And friends. I don't see it. Guys don't see it. I don't get a glance. They flirt with girls In shorts and spaghetti straps.
Flawless It is just a word People strive to become it People die to become it But it is just a word Beauty is in the eye of the beholder That's one person's opinon
I grab a rag from the old wooden stand; Society was staying my hand. Begging and screaming to not take it off; But as I stared at myself in the mirror; I was not happy with myself.
Girl to me your beauty is constructed ingenuity conducted by the command of our God who makes no mistakes if I could describe your love I'd say it is a river a giver of life giving the right substance to live off like
I wear confidence like a fancy leather jacket crafted from Italy.
So many things happening around me and it just amazes me how God just continues to keep his hedge of protection around me and to bless me.I sometimes wonder about things that happened to me in the past and how so any people have walked out of my
My hair my nails my tan? All rockin'! But how might you ask is my body not shockin'?
Ive never seen a women with hair so fair. Wrinkled skin but she wears Chanel. 92 with looks of 62. She's great. Warm Heart like her favorite blueberry muffin. Devastated by loneliness...
I am flawless because I'm flawed, The imperfections make me perfect, I'm flawless because I'm 6 foot 5, I have to duck in the shower, And check the pool's depth before I dive,
And there she stood. Mascara running down her face. Her hair knotted in soaked locks. Clothes, wet, clinging to her body. Every curve and feature magnified. He’d never seen a creature more beautiful
There I was another day spent counting miles subtracting calories calculating deficits. Run, run to look good, run to look pretty, run so boys will like you.
It looked original, body so curvy, eye's so blue, gray, green, even something a little in between, you know what I mean?
I connect every star with an imaginary line But also link our fate together with a single red thread. Love forged upon theinvisible path I paved Falls perfectly into my own celestial vision.
There is a white scar on my forehead
Beauty is in the Eyes of Society Growing up, I was never skinny; my skin was dark and all I wanted was to be pretty. I was 10; looking at magazines, seeing all of the skinny girls
We judge before we know Accept those with media at their disposal A profile picture isn't a window to the soul You'll never know I'd stay up countless hours Talking, Talking, Talking
I'm not sure how to wear self confidence
We are all waiting for the day
Break the lense
I'm perfectly and wonderfully made
Why am I kickass? My grades are quite high, for me the girls would die, I've got luscious brown hair, when you're older you'll care, I jump high for my heighth also, I'm white.
Blonde hair and blue eyes, That's what makes me, ME;
"Look in the mirror and tell yourself you're beautiful' . I'd repeat it. Look in the mirror and say " I love you". I'd try , but nothing would come out . I'd go mute. I spent most of my life trying to hide myself.
I tilt my head up, it reflects the light better. Followed by the caption, carefully typed letter by letter. Should I use Valencia? it makes me look tan. This will definately get me famous, every "like" is a fan.
Aubrey Contreras FLAWLESS Scholarship 12/9/14 Self-Love
Sun rises up Sun shines on my face I open my eyes, stretch to Heaven and I sense God's smile upon me. Looked at myself in the mirror, what do I see?
Walking into class, I will not say a word. Blind glances, mute snickers, and invisible smiles fill the void. I am aware of many things. I laugh in a closed circle; my
love your photograph it's now all social media don't fear criteria getting likes, sharing pictures everyone has different scriptures. sometimes people feel insecure
The perfume of warm caramel married to spiced pumpkin permeates the amiable atmosphereThe stifling heat stammers a tired goodbye and welcomes the blushing breeze
Im flawless because my skin is as warm as the Sun dipped in Black. Onyx. Black Diamond. Black. Brown. Tan. As warm as the Sun dipped in Black. Trust me, I'm beatiful my friend. As warm as the Sun dipped in Black.
I AM HERE ! I AM ALIVE ! LOOK AT ME MAMA!
I think I am beautiful, In a different sort of way. I always keep them laughing, And they just want me to stay. My face is something of my own, One alike you'll never see.
Looking at my reflection every morning Never knowing what to expect Some days I love it some days I hate it But one day I look inside the reflection and see someone beautiful
I am who i am, no longer can anyone tell me who i am Tears flowed down my face, anger and rage flowed through my veins Those were the days when I wasn't who I am Now im at peace, My self esteem at its finest peak
Flawless or more like lawless I thought I could handle it but it was all a mess. People would judge my decisions But they don't recognize my superstitions Either way it doesn't matter
Numbers don't define me The numbers of my GPA The numbers in my bank account The number of hours I spend putting on make up Or rather The number of seconds I actually don't The numbers on the scale
Acne scars and facial blemishes My true beauty is what these do not diminish, It's the fact that I can get through the day with a smile Even when I'm sporting a messy hair style
Freak twisted, strange disturbing, unnerving, disgusting demented, insane, fantastic, beautiful thrilling, amazing, dazzling
My incapacity to despise my flawsis what makes me flawless.
No, I am not Kelly Clarkson I really do have hazel eyes, Its where my conscience hides It tells me I am beautiful But I deny It sings me lullabys when I cry about how pretty hurts,
Alone in the forest of the black gnarled trees They beckon for me to join them in the dark. No moon shines bright through where there should be leaves, Just black, bare. branches and bark.
To count on both hands how many flaws I have, but to see it adds up to more than 6, you must be mistaken. Then I realize, it is not my flaws that are counted, no it is the flaws that society,
I fill my lungs With the nebulas and stars. Breathe in the frost of the moons, Exhale the rays of the suns. I let my eyes dance like stars In the cosmic heavens above.
My lips are chapped and peeling and blistered and red and sore and raw but soft and plump and full and pink and curvy and luscious and perfect
I was once an ugly black girl with a big gap
Long limber legs clumsy yet cultured- diamond shaped face both priceless and scarred- bouncy brunette hair too complicated in the mornings but too simple at night- who is she?
I See,but the heart can see what the mind may
I think the hardest thing to accept -
The only way I can relieve all this missery all this pain is to scream,
Is there a thing as flawless? Or is that just something they taught us? Can anyone be perfect? And if so is it worth is? Being flawless is boring. It keeps the mind from exploring.
Soft hazel eyes A smile with infinite wonders As I enter a room I never encounter a stranger Im more than Flawless, Im Priceless A gem in my mothers eyes And a diamond in my Saviors
iWoke up like dis! My face is flawless From very rounded square edge Every small freckle My 3 beauty marks - they make triangle around my mouth The shine in my dark brown eyes
I don't care how I look I can control a fifteen hundred piund animal So I sure as hell do not need your opinion. I have struggled all my life to love myself And now that I do, I have never been happier.
My thighs stretch out across the seat when I sit.
How I am flawless? What a bore, These weak and fragile ideals, We hold them close, To build ourselves up, But the world in its flawless heart, Strikes us into chaos How am I flawless?
The way I love is so bizarre. You'd see it as I watch the stars on a late night, his hand in mine, as we talk of our future: oh, we'll be fine. I think of how this came about.
Confidence It wakes me up Puts a smile on my face She is my best friend My best girlfriend Confidence whispers compliments in my ear Throughout the day Just to get me through it
Three times I felt like I needed to end my life. Three times I felt like I couldn't keep going. Three times I felt flawed. Three times I looked myself in the eyes and found enough fire to keep fighting.
Someone once said that we all wear a mask to hide our true self and to fit in with the rest. But whose mask is the best. I think we have reached a point where everyone has a mask. I don’t know who I’m talking to and that makes me feel bad.
Sparkling thats how they're seen Blood shot how they feel after hours of work Portals to the soul thats how they're cliched
I am strong
Baby, I'm flawless No wrinkles, no scars. Curves from top to bottom And I can show you where they are. Baby, I'm flawless No stress, no fear. When I walk in a room
Modern times are curious. My eyes see the refreshed feed that refresh me and make me see. Fancily Photoshopped fellas “free of flaws” but they are unable to emulate me. Modern times are curious, see?
Many women are ashamed of their bodies. I was. I hated my stringbean figure, My straight hair that never does what it is told, My thick legs, My freckles, My glasses and my eye color.
Melt the liquid make-up from my solidified face. I have let my friends, my family, and myself weld it straight to my face. It masks my freckles, my fear, and my blemishes.
It's been my dream in life to be taken seriously To be intelligent To be adept To have a voice But at every turn it's If you just used a little rogue and shadow
A blurred version of myself stares back at me the trail of hot tear stains linger on my cheeks as I ask the reflection "am I beautiful?" the question presses into my mind,
Who taught you to hate yourself? From our curly hair to our Nubian skin They could never put us down
My heart whispers. And I panic. My heart will whisper and it will murmur. I was scared, And I couldn’t breathe, When my heart leapt forward, And forgot to beat, For the first time.
I am flawless not because of my looks, But rather because of the way I study my books I am flawless not because of the clothes I wear Because clothes can go out of style just like my hair
The mirror is my perfection. It reflects, contradicts, opposes And reflects, reveals, interposes. I am; I am not. Two same divided. It allows me to realize what pride hid: Mistakes, mess-ups, mull-sided
I don’t know myself or who owns my eyes. I feel like an actor; a ghost, a disguise, I’m a colorless stranger and I let myself rot; but others are special, and them, I do not.
I won't cry in front of you, but I'll cry over you. I won't let anyone see me break, but I break down. I want nothing more than to go to school and teach, but it seems like a long shot.
I woke up with slob stuck to my face but I'm still flawless Hair a mess, all over the place but I'm still flawless
Those words, flowing through my mind like a boat on the ocean. Up, down. Up, down. Where am I going?
The beauty of love, Is that it cannot be sought, It cannot be tracked, It can only be found, Sometimes in the most unlikely of places
Simple and elegant Clean and relevant Beauty is not but a pedal Or strong and dirty like metal Like fire and water together Arises spring in the stormy weather Nothing good you say is in earth
I'm no Barbie.But I Thought I Should be.Compared myselfTo girls of the Barbie standard.Hurt myselfThinking all about'perfection'.
I turn to the side and see my stomach fat bulging out,
Perfect She screams at me Without flaws She shouts in my direction That voice perching on my brain This one in a million day that I am knocking it out of the park
Hair in waves, eyes so green,
To my descendants: When I arrived in this role I had been given, love was blossoming in many ways. People were just learning to love people for who they are, what they are.
The curtains fall, their breaths' are hushed She enters the stage, cheeks a'flushed She's captured the moment, they are rapt attent On the edge of their seats, even Lord Gent
This is my peom about how I feel, I never realized how hard itd be to peel, back all the visual standards to better reveal. My inner desires, thoughts turning my wheel. Well here I am, and this is what I'll say,
Im not afraid to show it, I dont care if people know it. I love myself. Ive taught myself to think it, I live, breathe, drink it. I love myself. Mirrors use to make me cry, now I dont even have to try. I love myself.
BEAUTIFUL Life is a BEAUTIFUL place So BEAUTIFUL that it shouldn’t be taken away
One less insult whispered sweet For flawless smile, flawless me I’m unbroken from head to feet Seamless lips, don’t they see? I’m perfect, so don’t crush desires
Dear Artists, We all have 3 common grounds of expressions I. One common idea to keep our feets grounded while the rest of our heads wandering in the universe Because we artists are the universe
Who is that girl with that frizzy,curly hair? Well that's me that looks impefectly, No need to dress up or try to impress, As everybody knows, I am different from the rest, From my long toes to my big nose,
I am Kiersten.
Why does the wind blow on the other side? Feeling as if I'm trapped in my own of forgetfullness
Horrid and Sad I begin to think why doesn't anyone love me/ Gruesome is what I had come to believe I was Little did I know I was Beautiful Crying so hard with no words to say
The wind gently blows. The leaves fall from the trees, down down down they go. The smell of marshmellows roasting in the campfire fills the autum air. There's a sudden rustling of crisp leaves. Campfire songs are sung.
My girls are beautiful Yes, more beautiful than just what they see in the mirror My girls are special
Momma always told me "girl you have the most beautifulest eyes."
I am beautiful The face that I hide It's beautiful It has always been good enough It always will be I am beautiful The dirt that you see on me is beautiful Because it means that I can work
Writing you this poem reflects my lovemakes you doubt, it’s hard to concealAccused to things that’s hard to dealso please erase the doubts above. Trust is like freeing a dove
See these feet:
my name is Samantha, please call me Sam. i sing and play guitar, i like to smile. i have brown hair and brown eyes, i'm pretty. someday i will be very successful.
Am I enough? To be considered beautiful, naturally. Naturally with acceptable flaws. Being 17 in a media-controlled world can either go left or right. Am I enough? To make mistakes and be forgiven. Still be human.
I am a bird.My voice holds the powerto sing you to sleep—to lull you into a dreamlike state of mind.
The day I asked myself am I really this person inside, Am I covering up the truth? Is there anything to hide. Blinded by other people's expectations, focused on unexpect fear.
in a room where darkness is like a thick mist in the air i slowly slip off his shirt i caress the smooth skin on his chest his neck my lips lock his as he unzips my jeans
Who knew the month of October could nourish my spirit and comfort my eyes wth a warmth of pure light and a never-ending bliss? Gold is delicately interwoven in the
Crisp air, pumpkin spice, gloomy skys. Ringing of a bell, and a rush of young kids. Laughing of old jokes lost in the separtion of summer. Sharpen pencils, and new books. Sniffling of colds and curing of hot coco
Oh! The leaves crunch beneath my feet And the only human sound is my heartbeat! Looking to the horizon, I see the changing trees; Their glorious, colorful beauty makes me quiver at the knees.
A special poem for you from me a special bond no one can see I’m thankful for all the things you have done for me I’m thankful for you always being there cause when my heart was hurt I felt like no one cared for me but when I need someone to vent
Truth, or lies? Beautiful eyes Hide the pain. Scars and marks, In the dark Is her world. Dripping red, The girl is dead, And yet she cries.
Black and white days with overcast waves, gently fade away the summer daze. The leaves, they break up with the trees and fall helplessly for the dew kissed ground. A spectrum of green and brown that bring with them a warm sound.
Emblazoned within the wet works of my brain, A time remembered as happiness so true— There rests a memory, mellifluous too, As the bees buzz with the sun’s rays and warm rain.
We live in a world where the world beautiful
A fallen leaf, An empty street, Cool air in my chest, It’s the time of the year I like best, Silence all around, No animals to make any sound, Time seems to stand still,
The leaves are falling slowly, gently, scattered It’s a little windy, not breezing, not so strong
So sweet and kind People may not see it, but I’m not completely blind… You fill people with joy With your beautiful smile…
The clouds stroll in; they strengthen the ice blue sky. The orange and red pop against puffs of heavy rain. Sweaters unearthed from cobwebs and dust. Warm maroons and toasty browns
The brilliant bright blue sky,The super sized sun,
I once read "A butterfly cannot see the beauty of its wings," and it really got me thinking. Is there really someone out there who finds me worth seeing? Am I more than just a thorn
I don't think I was ever meant to be beautiful.
A lone bird sings, In the distance a bell rings. On a big hill, Stands an abandoned wind mill. All is quiet through the day, And at night, a wolf finds his prey. What a beautiful sight,
Lure them in with your evanescent gleam. Bind them into your eternal paradise. Throw their hypnotic nothings to the wind. Craft velvet wings from jewels. Your primrose shimmer must never dull.
When I used to look in the mirror, I would see A girl who struggled, but yet was sometimes pretty. I struggled with my relationship with my family. Although they clothed, fed, housed, and spoiled me,
numbness is not romanticpain is not beautyand struggling is not beautiful
I don't stare at myself in awe of my own beauty, I stare in awe that I am called beautiful. I look so deeply at myself, with every intention to find this beauty. To answer the question I ever so constantly ask myself,
A white porcelain doll, Is never hidden in fear, She is never covered in regret, But she has something I love, The power: To forget... No mind to consume her time, No passion to lust for,
I hide behind it and look outhow are you? It nods, acqueses and smiles withoutwho am I? I see the inside and feel the paindon't show it! On the surface there's no complaintwhat is it?
Look into my eyes and you will see, the different side there is to me. Secrets that I've hidden so long that I sometimes forget, all the lies he told me, and all of this regret. Look into my soul and you will feel,
Everyone has a suicide.
You look beautiful, as the sun is settin Your face glimmers along with the Heavens On a scale of one to ten, you're an eleven You must be why God rested on day seven You are so fine, so so fine

The hummingbirds are still whirring their wings to that coronal metronome. Sending shivers through the shrapnel in an intrinsic trance with each wink. Thank God you've found a use for all that room,
The Earth is like a beautiful cloud, Just to be on it makes me feel proud. If only I could just release The world from War and Hell into Peace.
And everything I saw was beautiful;
I used to think it was beautiful To sacrifice yourself For someone you love Until someone I loved Sacrificed himself For me
The days slowly creep past me, so suddenly And as the deepest orange sunray peek upon the horizon before making its appearance.. I'm alive
There is a beauty in everything There is a beauty in simplicity In the simplicity of a smile That shines as bright as the sun that warms every inch of my body In the simplicity of laughter

This is for the girls who lie awake at night,
The worlds a stage and we are just mere actors, But the stage is too large, the lights to bright The audience won’t like us if we aren't just right Just the right amount of funny, pretty, smart, kind We panic under the pressure but it’s all just
Dreams guid us...
Love is what I want but I can't have Constantly taunt with a heart cut in halve Hoping for a chance but then afraid Just one glance and I would be swayed I love you
What makes me, me? Is it the way I comb my hair, my brains and beauty, or the shoes i wear on my feet? What makes me any different from you? Is it because i'm so kind
Do you ever think about one situation & how one little detail could've changed everything?
A green parakeet eats seeds ever so peacefully chirping on a tree
She looked more than stunning,
I woke up with the thought of you, When it asked me when you'll return, I smiled and said but were through, It said well tell him to make a u-turn, I told you he doesn't want anything to do with you,
How could he just break my heart and not give me a reason. Could it be the month? or maybe the season? How could he make me feel like I’m trash?
So what if I take up a little more room than the average person does To me........that just means I'm a little more to love Im just LIFESIZED See I go in public they look and they stare
I am a work of art, I am a masterpiece, My curves are my definition, that is what defines me. The shape of my nose,
And as for us... We are like words. Apart, such vulnerability, or an innocence maybe but only existing alone. Like single words, you feel invaluable until connected with others,
Cognitively Not where I should be Feelin' crazy Not lookin' like me Mental pictures Leavin' me unsure Disturbing thoughts Have gotten me caught
Not many know what it feels like to be scared senseless. To be terrified of a person so much it leaves you breathless. To look them in the eye after they leave you black and blue.
I will die. Young perhaps I will be put in a coffin The color of coal With a rainbow on top I will be beautiful Surrounded by fine silk With the smell of roses
The words fall from your lips, Ever so softly.
She was always criticized for her dark skin, “Chileee when the Lord made you, He must have forgot to set the timer and just left you in!” She was left too long in the oven, Her skin wasn’t made for loving.
Deletion. Every single one gone. The memories are fading away. No way of looking back into the past. No young faces nothing but a faded thought. Deleted forever, what once was is now gone.

How many times have they whispered your name as you walk by They point at you across the hall They giggle as you go into class I know that you notice them when they do But do you listen to them

He said yo midget but I kept on walking little did he know I went home and cried myself to sleep
Beautiful: Adjective "Exciting aesthetic pleasure; Generally pleasing". What the definition doesn't tell you, Is that beautiful,
It doesn't make sense, how someone so young, Would hate themselves so much And feel so unloved. We pay respect to the dead, But why not to the living? Why do we only care,
All I wanna do is play, But I'm watching the days pass away, And although you don't give me toys to chew, Master I will always love you, You walk in the door and I'm happy,

It was a warm summer day, And I was packing my backpack, To go home for the day, Off the beaten track. As I looked up, And turned to leave, This bright face lit up,
Words cannot express the emotion in my body Like the rush of water crashing into the rocks My aspiration to talk is shadowed by humility Clinching my fists and shuttering in fear
confident yet insecure
My mind has an emotion that feeds of my heart For what I feel it expresses in words It is not scripted to what it must be But simply just wright's from what my heart tells thee It dances to life with creativity

It's 12:10am as i write this my darling insomnia fueling my abyss feeling cool and calm as music fills the air though as calm as i feel i can't ignore my thoughts the thoughts that i can't bear
They call me 2 chairs Alls i get is deep stares Feelin like im commonly confused
Full of knowledge I received Rooted deep in earth I didn’t have to travel I am the inner cup Half full kind of tree I listen to remember Listen to the wind Who carries stories
Black and White, for some that is all there is the stark constrast of good and bad, right and wrong, rich and poor, thick and thin. What ever happened to gray? to shade, to shadow,
it keeps us alive our eyes glow, our hearts beat. No matter the distance, as long as it is not within us. embrace the mystical mystery that plays like a musical.
I can go for days
Are you staying true to the dream of the adolescent you?
The streets are empty. Life turns shallow this time of night. The stop lights continue to change, but there is no one around. The beauty of it remains, but the sadness takes shape.
Love Strong, wonderful Confusing, amusing, amazing A beautiful magical feeling Trust
Forty poems later but for you this is number one, read this and I’ll show you more to come. Dear lord give me the confidence, this girl’s got me in the power trip.
It’s been twelve years since I have felt alone and like something is missing in my life.
I think about you every now and then You're not my friend No you're too akward, even to pretend I guess it's whatever So shy and sweet, until she crys and you're not there to sweep her off her feet.
Someday we shall meet and everything will fall in place, without the any notice and your arrival and be unexpected, when I have fallen you will be there to help me back up,
What is life? Living in a country where freedom is the key Yet, being told what to do till you die Being expected to be perfect Being expected to become rich Yet, you get critizied by the color of you skin
As we stare into each other's eyes
I am not who you think. I am more than this. I have to be. I will not end. Some part of me remains.
People hurt people. People hurt eachother because they've been hurt by people. People killing eachother over people, afraid to love because the pain caused by people.
If you think of Spring, what do you see?Flowers, eggs, bunnies, or bees?I see the grass, green and lush;The streams filled with a serene gush.The sky is a blanket, infinite and blue;

I am someone who never gives up, fighting for what I believe in, fighting through dangers I face:
When the sun shines through the clouds and the world seems to glow.
Life is to be heard. It you don't take a chance, why are you living?
I just want someone who will be simply content by my side. Someone smart and funny. Who will be happy having me, flaws and all.
Black darkness. 1:34 a.m. Thinking of you: Good morning. I miss you. But then I remembger you have embarked on a journey that I am no longer part of. But still - Good morning.
Missed you today. It's been a while.
You live to be loved, but what is there to love when so many are wanting to survive and do not have the heart to stop and think - if they were to love, it'd be okay, It'd be okay.
I remember how much it hurt, I recall the betral, I can still feel the pain. The hurt of your smiles, smiling as if everything's the same. I saw it coming, I just never got around
They come and go, as they always do. Some linger longer than others. And yet others still are oblivious. But who can blame human nature? Stay detached.
As I try to grasp upon this abstract feeling within me, "butterflies" as they call it, bewildered by the tension pressuring my cells running through me, pumping wildly and surging through my veins,
Lost of air... that's the feeling. Loss of heart, and the loss of care. It's the loss of the part you used to hold, the loss of the feelings you thought you had shared, It was 'mutual'.
You fill my veins with poison, you drive my mind insane, It's you who leave me unwanted, my soul so filled with pain. I try to walk away, forget you, I try to never look backm
I didn't mean to fall in love, like how you didn't mean to say goodbye, Like how you didn't mean to find another, another perhaps better than I. I didn't mean to fall in love,
love love is a distinguished feeling a true feeling it can be imagined but better when experienced love is pure love is kind love is found in the deepest barriers love is unexpected love is bright
Time FreezesPupils Dilated
Living out of bags Going from friends to friends When Life gets this bad When It ends, It ends You put the buzzed to the side Cause you know they've lost your mind And the world says you lost
I am the secret adventures through the woods.I am the distant sounds of singing.I am the late night games of tag with childhood friends.I am the voices intertwining to become one song.
He is often my 3 AM thoughts and lie there hoping that I am his.
I might not live to take in my next breath,
What is Love? Is it fair? When one loves someone, yet the other doesn't care. Is love a war? Is love a fight? Is love worth all those sleepless nights?
Can't you see words hurt? Does it make you feel better? When you say hateful things, Or put others down for your comfort. Others have feelings too, times where we want to be done.
I cause concern Make heads turn While all my heart can do is yearn For you to understand That this was God’s command Not some man’s demand And that This life in the hood Is a choice
I'm lost and confused, I've been mistreated, I feel used, I fall in love and get refused.
You know the feeling... The one where you swear you could fly when you're around that one person yes that one of course....love it is painful yet we seem to go through that pain again and again why?
One job may change my life.
Subliminal messages being fed to our brains
We never know when we're going to dieor how long we'll live. So we spend most of our lives wondering why.
I am trapped air. I want to scream but I cannot speak
I don’t want to be anywhere, anywhere but here
Your arms wrap around my waist. Mine hold your neck. You pull me tight, And lift me off my feet. The smile that lights my face is permanent, It won't go away. The seconds feel like minutes
My heart races with every thought of you
When I was five I was asked Roberto, what do you want to be? What do you see your self being when you're older?
You never know what the future will bring you nor do you know who will be there when you wake, life is a game of risks and chances the real question is how do we handle the grasp of it
Who is this girl we call Beauty? Where can she be found? What does she look like? And what is her sound?

Her stride so poised She floats with every step she makes in her nude Pigalle heel Demeanor, so regal it demands respect
Meghan was a single mother of two She worked until her fingers were red and blue Her poor children would always whine and whine One day she decided that would be the last time they whined
When did she become more than just a breeze?
I think it sucks that we only have mirrors and pictures and selfies to see who we are. To see the light manifest itself in a way that shapes the reflection of our bodies and our scars and the things that scare us.
Girl stands alone in her bathroompleading for solace.Eyes lock on the mirror,the reflection of a girl with possibilities a mere stain.She is there,she exists,in every corner that Girl turns.
I find it impossible To tell the world you love somebody Until you truly know The color of their eyes And I don't mean The generic Birth certificate answer Her eyes are not blue
Loved Unconditionally SS <3 Mystery women Profound and grand in nature Like a jewel
Ran By heart Go in new Not as old Be bold Leap with hope Being dope
Always There Bright and smooth You heal my wounds Far and close, you seem right here
there was a moment a weak, broken moment where I wanted us to end not because I didn't love you not because you weren't exactly what I needed not because I wasn't happy
If I could,
My pen gliding against the paper Drawing out my words A voice thats unknown, A desire to be heard Music, art, writing, A mind full of words, A voice of meaning, And the hatred of lying
A religion based on the belief that god exists in writing, pouring your life onto paper to recieve enlightenment to a place so inviting.
I have the chance to change one thing in this world. I have the chance to change one thing in this big messed up beautiful world. So I jump up, throw my arms in the air,

She lived in Kenya, Only knew her ABC's, Moved to America at eleven years old, Taught herself English, No one helped her, She fell behind, And yet her heart never failed,
To the one with unbearable anxieties and sorrows, Holding you back from living and breathing towards tomorrow Believing that the light of hope on your Savior's shoulders Will fail to reach you in time
Why is it that you can’t see Your own beauty? I wish I had a million words to Describe you. What is it that makes you Quietly doubt my love? I wish I had a million words to describe it.
Don't worry. You shouldn't do that. Just close your eyes. Close your eyes and forget about everything. Forget about pain. Forget about your troubles.
To forget...To love...To heal Love cannot be earned nor learn I am thankful that you never left But it's time for you to go Smile just like the way you used to smile with me

My dream is my job Where I get to travel and creat and invent Oh, no, no ,no, child They say No, you must get a job that makes money Singers make money And they do what I love
I don’t judge. I tell the truth.
We are defined Not by the hearts that beat within us
Those long nights You believed would never end, Filled with tears and fright That push you from the mend, Will one day join together By the hand of God on high, And become a feather,
One, Two, Three, Four, are you eager for it's shore? The pale face rises into night, soldiers stand watch with eyes of glimmer and shine. we stand watch on the woods of our sailors

Today is today, I mean that's what everyone says. But today is the day that I hide , in the shadows, faces of you are revealed in my sight. I'm afraid to ever walk in those steel doors, because with me you have no insight.

I resent my own species for damning so many others, Extinguishing those to whom nature is also mother If I could change one thing, I would open humanity’s eyes,
What would I change if I were allowed to? I would change the world’s view of beautiful. How we saw girls today was wrong, I knew. Remember when beauty was just youthful? Young girls don’t know how wonderful they are.
All I want is to write beautiful words and to speak as if my tongue spun silk.
I've lived a life that's safe. Free of rejection, and what come's with it...
The stars; so far yet so near. Though impossible, I can feel their soft whispers through the night. Rippling in my ear, each has a story to tell, A story of the beginning, the now, and the end.
An obsession An addiction. It tortures me, but I need it. I got to know the number on the scale. Restrict my food. Binge eat. Purge. Thoughts of laxatives.
When I look at their faces, Drenched in perfection, When I flip the pages, I look into their eyes, like they're masked in disguise, they look so ideal, This cannot be real,

I had zits. I have zits. We all do, it just comes with being a teenager. And just like zits, that awful “I’m not beautiful” feeling also comes with being a teenager.
I'll never hear a guy say I'm beautiful, because who would look at me and see beauty? I'll never hear a guy say I'm smart, beacuse who would go out with me for my brains?
Disparge the innocent, laudable overachieve/ The real world will masticate her eventually/ Avoiding the fiasco of life will soon catch up with the doe-eyed and free-spirted/ only the good die young, my pretty/ One dubious thought, one regret/ One
I believed my heart was scattered, thrown away like it didn't matter, I assumed that love wasn't real, and that time never heals. Exiled to travel a lonely wasteland, that's where I saw you, maybe an illusion, maybe I'm confused.
LOVE; a feeling that can't be defined. Nor described. UNCONDITIONAL Love; Feelings that can't be set aside. Feeling like no one understands. Finding no on to confide in. LateNighhts.
Staring out at the city lightsI was wasting time, wasting timePhotographing the pieces, I reached new heightsRealizing the old colors never seemed to rhyme
Good Morning, my Beautiful. Good Morning my Sweet. My love of my life, How I long to meet. To hear your Beautiful Voice To see your Beautiful Face To kiss your Beautiful Lips

Walking down a new road, my eyes; a gyroscope. Looking around smiling happily, a good day, I hope. Walking down the same road relishing all that pass, my eyes; a sponge I pray that it will last. Walking on the same road I see a beautiful faw
Before you, my heart was failing. I couldn’t breathe, see, or feel. I was on the verge of dying before I met you. As soon as I saw you walk through those hospital doors, I knew you were the medicine I so badly needed to survive.
I may be bruised, But I’m not broken I will not let an ugly past Ruin a beautiful future Still I rise Look at me and tell me What you see Not someone that’s going to fail I will succeed
There is the pain of the heart, that arises when the hope of love becomes unrequited.... There is so much misery, shame, and embarassment that one feels,
It's been awhile since we talked, It's just that talking has become hard, Things have changed more than I thought.
The rippling grayness of water trickled beneath,Love, tender and sweet, was draw from its sheath.The hearts of two are intertwined as one,As the alluring season of autumn is begun.
Rain forms on her skin and falls upon the ground Each step, each breath, a labor—they see her, try. Panting, struggling, doing her best not to be “this” They see her now, she cries inside—embarrassed.
Play it as written, that's all. Just play it exactly as written, just as the composer intended. Everything is written in the score, just practice what is written, right? No, that's absurd. And reckless.
Talk like the sky Become your own
True beauty is found every place we look, not only just inside a book, though most think that it's equal to lust, we must dig down deeper and dig we must. For the beauty is stored inside ourselves, not only in tales upon high shelves, it is defin
The Light of Innocence In his eyes. Chaste, and pale. Like a lily in moonlight. Sweet caramel, heated by laughter, ever gazing, marveling, at the Ocean afar; so untamed.
Our love so great let it be ever Shown Like salt spread on obsidian black Stone Our hearts beating in such great Rhapsody Syncing together in just Harmony Let the devout reverent choir Sing
Wanting Forever for your warmth to be near, Wanting Forever for your smile to be here to re-live your touch maybe too much, To Re-embrace you to be re-enter by you.
(From the touch of an instrument to slowing tempo, the high note, key to key, no beat in the surround sound but in the mind, round and round your mind goes, imgination goes exploring, exposed from the high end note, didn't know how music would be
Your eyes are like a remedy, Your soft hands dry my tears. Your heart is my soul's melody, it makes me swallow all my fears. Your embrace is like a dream when I'm asleep, And then it's clear,
Lost in an abundance of love, The lover gives the her heart a chance. It’s been months since their friendship Has grown they have been together in sickness. And Each day becomes another diaries page.
We come upon a crowded room, Where presently our character does loom, Tangled in the voices she Can’t think straight, or feel glee, So she sits and looks outside And tries to go beyond her mind
Tears stained the faces of the mourning as God cast a silent rain that dreadful day. Shoulders fell heavily under the weight of Death’s hand
I'm torn between the two My heart beats for both of you I can't decide I can't make up my mind Because of the things that bind us Like words of love, but lust decieves
I’m in love with a thing called loveBut love won't love me backAnd I don't know whyI’ve loved you since the 8th grade loveSo love me backI see her all the timeBut she won't let her love be mines
You are the reason autumn burns red It bleeds to compete with your brilliance Leaves fall as offerings when trees bow down As you walk on by, hair like October’s gown
Eyes so big and beautiful. A heart so strong, yet so fragile. Your mind so brilliant, your love so enduring. Your lips, your spirit beyond alluring. Such a sweet disposition, living in a world full of confusion.
Perhaps broken roads Create more beautiful paths For ones fork in the road Created a gloomy past Lessons are learned and the lessons are passed For ones valuable mistake Prevented a serious clash
In all adversity, I shall always thrive, And without you here, I will shine. You will not stop me for I am still alive. My heart and my soul will be kept mine.
Child you are beautiful You are the darkest bark Covered in a sheen from the purest honey The earth grew grass to soften your tread The trees grew leaves to lessen your heat The flowers bloom every morning
I refuse to put my hair up this week. I have bruises on my neck and throat and shoulders. It hurts, oh God it hurts.
Fashionably late. The old and white nostalgia descends upon my door. Nervously- perhaps anti- cipation draws me like an artist struck by deja vu- I walk out to greet her and
Do you believe that im telling you the truth? Do you trust that i would never try to hurt you? Do you think that i left you to be mean? Do you ever wonder what life could have been like if you didnt do that?
Lonely. Loved. Boring. Beautiful. Scared. Strong. Worthless. Worth It. Worrying. Worry-free. Plain. Pleasing. Average. Amazing. Flawed.
We exist only behind the words we speak. Standing at this distance, we forever reach. We swallow the affinity because we know deep down it can never be. We put the dreams to rest and embrace the reality we live in.
Leaving My dream come true Can I really do this? Believe and keep on believing Living
Stupid me? Shame on me? I thought you were telling me the truth when you said that you love me.
They see a monster, but I see perfection He saw content, but I saw an injection Where do I go when I need Protection? Judgment sees bruises but I see affection
Everytime I see her, I fall in love again, And hope for a time when her and I can be we Slowly I close my eyes, attempting to pretend.
Storm of Ignorance By Lynisha Arceus
The sun, clouds, moon and stars Represent what you are to me Amazing, powerful, compassionate, a friend Describes how I see you
We never truly see ourselves; Only reflections or images. Perhaps that is why we rely On others’ opinions of our looks. If we truly saw, I wonder if our thoughts would change.
A reflection I am fat. I am ugly. All of these imperfections. I need to be perfect. I don't eat. Fat equals ugly. The mirror tells me so. My reflection stares back at me. Disgusting.
I’m ugly Don’t look at me. No one wants me, I’m just A fat Bitch. I only wanted To be pretty. I bet she doesn’t need To suck in her stomach Like I do. She’s so Skinny,

Fighter Put on those gloves and I feel the power surge. I feel the lightning in my veins. I hear the thunder in my heart. I become stronger with every drop of sweat. I become faster with every breath.
On a beautiful spring day, a child was born. The whole family gathered ‘round at the sight of the baby, so adorn.
Your eyes, green with flicks of brown. They swallowed me whole. They took my soul. They flipped my world world upside down.
I remember the gently blowing wind in my youth that shook the trees. I remember the soft, gentle flower petals fall from the trees and land in my palm. The passing street cars zooming right on by.
She was a tree Not because she was strong and sturdy But because of her inability to keep her thoughts together They fell like leaves on the sidewalk to be trampled by those who passed by
A song for the brokenhearted. The battered, The bruised. A song for the scared. The trembling, The timid. A song for the fighters. The determined, The brave.
Let me suffer Am I insane for thinking so What is life without suffering If not a blinding light that blinds the joy
In this shell, Anger prevails. Multitudes exact judgement on me, Before they know my soul. Existential wisdom is lost on them, As their thoughts have already been consumed. Utopia preoccupies their minds,
Tell me something beautiful. It will get me by during the absence of you Unless that absence continues; That break lingers on; Then tell me nothing at all
Chiquitita I am sorry That you are blue and black That he’s taught you that all you have worth Is your body And that you think that you are dumb. Chiquitita it’s alright to cry
I like this guy, I like him a lot in fact he already holds a place in my heart. I wonder and ponder what he thinks of me in the end it is me he doesn’t see. So I wait by the shore hoping someday he'd want more.
STAND ABOVE IT, there are too many women out there, who have convinced themselves that they are not capable of surviving in a world where sexism, male chauvinism has rammed them into the dust.
I catch myself Glancing in the mirror Looking at the image before me Unsatisfied With how crooked my teeth are With the way my stomach hangs over my pants With the acne on my face Unsatisfied
BAMB! was that the door? I heard my heart thud in my chest. my chest, so shaken up, my throat so hard to swollow. clinching. my hands and teeth. just hearing the scream. PLEASE STOP!
Why was it that I could not look at you without smiling the rest of the day? I would walk by the corridors gazing at the distance, seeing no one but you. Your laugh, your smile, your voice, all charmed me.
A hard world we live in today It's almost like the ultimate video game But unlike a game there is no resetting No pausing And definitely No extra lives But these harsh realities are often ignored
What makes me beautiful.. the fact that i can hide my flaws with makeup?? What makes me beautiful...that i can mask the real me?? I am beautiful without the makeup and the picture perfect smile.
A beautiful black girl with innocent young brown eyes And she gazes up at me
Deep within a hot blistering day the trees swaying whilst the wind is array. The sun illuminates the slaves scared slays and America fails to open her young eyes.
What is ugly? One might ask, When appearance is nothing but a mask. Pretty features that work to hide One's true potential that lies inside
Segregation, discrimination. No sense of limitation, Prejudice nations filling frustrations, Inalienable rights with no representation. Pure humiliation.
