Am I Beautiful?

By
Hello
My face reflected
My body in the mirror.
The curve of my back
Convex.
Concave.
Who is this?
Is it me?
Is my vision truly accurate?
Am I real?
And how do I describe it all?
The slope of my knee.
Too disgusting to imagine?
Lovely?
Revolting?
Beautiful…?
And what of my ankles?
Are they…
Too thin?
Too fat?
My thighs,
My hair,
Stringy, broken, dull,
My feet,
My stomach,
My eyes…
What to do?
What to do?
Who?
What?
When?
Where?
Why?
Who is it?
I am not.
Who can I ask?
Why ask?
Who tells the truth?
Why bother?
Who knows the answer?
I can’t be.
Am I beautiful?
