You look at yourself,
Through the mirror.
You become over-whelmed,
And filled with disgust.
You’re not pretty.

You don’t fit in.
You’re not like the average girl.
You can’t afford name brand clothes,
Or pounds of make-up.

Everything looks wrong,
And you can’t change a thing.
You’re done living like this
In a judgmental society,
It’s hell.

You’re not pretty.

The author's comments:
I felt like every teenage girl feels like they aren't pretty because of the way society portrays teenage girls. They are supposed to look skinny and tall, right? Well every girl can't look like that and my poem tells how teenage girls feel.
