I Hate My Face This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , Hillsborough, NJ
No matter how many times I
punch the mirror it
still reflects
still projects
still renders that horrid
reality all too clearly
I don't look at myself
and think “cute” I think
barbaric German fat girls named Olga
and their chunky braids in
place of ears as they salute
Hitler and parade around him with
flowers
and ill-fitting dresses
and in that moment
I hate my face.
