In Her Skin

She scrubbed and scrubbed
but, she couldn’t get it off.
Why can’t she rid herself of it?
She scrubbed so hard her skin was raw and scarred.
The more she scrubbed the deeper it went into her skin,
though she scrubbed and scrubbed
she could never get deep enough within herself
to get it out.
She used to soar higher than the trees but something knocked her down.
All those people who told her she wasn’t good enough.
Not skinny enough or tall enough or pretty enough.
Never enough.
But no one every told her how perfect she was.
