"Teenagers only have to focus on themselves - its not until we get older that we realize that other people exist."- Jennifer Lawrence

No amount of contemptment 

Can mask the hurt and the pain

I hate 

That I cannot tear through my skin as I could a piece of paper. 

Ink does not bring justice to discomfort.

Thoughts cannot create joy 

As nor a rock could create love 

Happiness; sadness; envy; fear; anger; disgust; 

They are all illusions. 

Tricks of the mind 

That normally don't last 

Self worth is just fiction 

You cannot price perfection. 

Body image is cloudy

Since it is impossible to see the face of God. 

You are a splitting image of beauty.
