Beautiful Girl
Why can’t you see yourself the way
We all do

How do you not see your beauty
Your strength
Shining from within

I know you’ve been through a lot
Felt let-down, angry, upset, totally done with
Life

Appearances are deceiving
We all know that

But I don’t understand why
You insist on demeaning yourself constantly
When all I see is a wonderful person

My heart goes out to you
Your pain is evident in
Your eyes

I wish I could hold up a mirror
Reflecting our impressions
But I know you would still see
Imperfection


The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by a friend who cannot see how beautiful and special she is. I hope that people will recognize their own inner beauty and embrace themselves through this poem.
