"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross


Looking in the mirror
I see cuts
I see scars
I see words burned
Into my skin.
I see devilish laughter
I see bruises and tears
I see my life hanging by a thread
And my feet standing on the edge.
I see eyes that are too small
And hair a mess,
I see an ugly face,
A piece of trash.
I see blood
As I'm shaking
Welcoming fear
As I'm breaking.
I see a lifeless girl
And you tell me that it's beautiful.

Thank you.
