Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

I don’t deserve to be happy

Please don’t tell me that

I should be a positive person

When it comes down to it

I’m angry at every single thing

I’m not going to deny myself and say

Deep down I am beyond happy

Know that I will continue to tell myself

I am a horrible, disgusting human

Nobody can ever tell me

I deserve to feel true joy

And whenever I see myself I think

Why do people tell me I should feel this way?

The author's comments:

This poem was inspired by the well known poem called Pretty Ugly. I wanted to re-create it with two different yet similar topics to spread an equally powerful message. With this poem, it is all about how the reader sees the world and way they interpret life.
