She looks at me like I'm
She talks to me like I'm
She says things like
You're fat.
You're ugly.
You're not good enough.
She knows how to trick me
Into believing her,
And I do..
Every single time.
She always screams at me
For messing me up.
She yells, You shouldn't have done that!
But the worst thing she says is
If you were as pretty as she is,
You could find a boyfriend!
And I can't run from her,
Because I see her every day
In the mirror.
I will always be
My worst enemy...

The author's comments:
This is a poem I wrote about how I feel about myself. It's the girl inside who always criticizes me and makes me feel worthless...

we choose what we think of ourselves. instead of picking out the bad look deeply for the good. if you can't find any make some. one thing i could tell you is you make wonderful poems. :)
