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.


The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this piece is I am a teen and it is very hard to see a person for their personality. These days its all about how they look and how much designer bags they have. I am tired of the world and I want people to love themselves before it's too late.
