Tell me I'm pretty,
go ahead,
I won't believe you.
Lies are growing in my heart.
Someone long ago planted the seed,
and now a weed has taken all my self worth,
No amount of gardening will bring it back.
Go ahead,
call me beautiful,
I won't believe you.

As soon as I read this poem, I fell in love with it because i know that every girl wants to be told they're pretty and can relate to this poem when they don't get told that that often.
