All those days,
Pricking and preening
Trying to make myself
Someone you’d want to love
Trying to fit into shoes too big
And dreams too small.
I've spent days hoping that
I could be pretty,
That I could be wanted.
But all you’ve ever loved
Were the words from my mouth
And the hope I distilled
In a heart too many times broken.
All this time I’ve thought
Two pounds smaller would make you care.
Just one more layer of eyeliner
Would make you want me again.
But that never was true.
That was never who I wanted to be
I have spent years upon years
Trying to make myself
the person you wanted me to be.
Trying to find a girl who never could
Or would exist.
I thought existence could be found
Through the love and acceptance of others,
But that never was true.
Society lies to us from such a young age
That thinner is better.
That no one could ever love imperfections.
That never was true.
That never will be.
Open your eyes
And find who you want to see.
I don't think I really have words for this poem. It simply is a realization I have slowly been coming too. I hope you realize it soon too.
