"Come on kid, this is your dream!"

I look into the mirror
I do not like what I see
I look a little deeper
Beauty is not free
"Am I beautiful yet?"


I exercise today
I run a couple laps
My heart is beating
No yet, I don't have a thigh gap
"Am I beautiful yet?"


I want to look great
I straighten my hair
I put on my makeup
I look in the mirror, glare
"Am I beautiful yet?"


I look at all the girls
Who are so pretty
I hide my head in shame
I'm full of self pity
"Am I beautiful yet?"


I try to smile wide 

Like all the pretty girls 

It's way too hard 

I think I'm gonna hurl

"Am I beautiful yet?"


I want to be beautiful 

But that will never be 

Because I don't fit along 

With society 

"Am I beautiful yet?"

I was sitting in my English Class scanning the room. I realized society loved everyone. Everyone but me.
