No.
No dear.
Nobody cares about you.

Please empty your head of these fantasies.
The world only wants to know you
if you believe that other people can love you as much as you do.
and we cant all love ourselves.

I would know.

some of us focus on the 10 extra pounds
or the raccoon eyes
or the lack of truth
in our smiles.

some of us notice when we are faking it
when we are filled with despondency
and try so hard to let our eyes shine,
but they don't.

the sun does not smile at us
ever.
so please,
stop.
just stop.
you're torturing yourself.
do not indulge in their vaingloriousness.

look away from the mirror
and instead
at the window.
