What I See

I look in the mirror,
And I Don't see me,
I'm the kid that everyone laughs at
The kid that always gets pick on
I look ugly
Gross, Weird
and definitely not myself
I'm not happy with myself for so many reasons
When I was younger everything was much easier but now
body image is the only thing that teens look at and care about
I don't want to live my life always hating myself, but why can't I see my true self when I
LOOK IN THE MIRROR.
