The Hurt, Broken<and Abused

That's what I see in their eyes,
Everytime they loook at me.
Is evident on their faces.
Their beautifully, perfect faces.

"You're worthless"
They sneer at me,
Telling me things I already know.
Whispering insults,
Meant to hurt and destroy.
And they work.

If only....
If I think to myself.
If only I was as pretty as they are.
If only I was thinner.
If only I was smarter.
Maybe things would be different......

But there's no point.
There's no point to "if onlys".
They're just wishes.
Wishes that will never come true.
Wishes from the heart of the hurt,
Of the broken and the abused...

I won't lie about being able to relate but I will say that you're talented! Hopefully you're not still feeling this way. Remember; True beauty comes from the inside! I've met enough rotten people with the most pleasant of appearances.
