    dotsLost Beautydots

    She sees herself, standing so frail
    Her skin so soft and her color pale
    Finding flaws throughout her reflection
    Perceiving herself as an infection
    Detecting beauty only when veiled
    Realizing in attraction she has failed

    The scars from her past standing out
    Her many imperfections scattered about
    Believing herself to be overweight
    Forgotten by all to be her fate
    She looks at herself time and again
    Questioning how to look better, where to begin

    Living each day full of suspense
    Walking though life in total diffidence
    Not noticing the admiration in the eye
    As people everyday pass her by
    She is what people could only wish to be
    Pure beauty throughout her is all they see

      Self Esteem, I wish it had never been invented (or..known, I don't know) Imagine how many lives could have been saved if only humans did not know the meaning of Self Esteem. This is a good poem and it did hit home for me. This was a wonderful write, good job.

      Yes true beauty shines from the inside out. Make up is often thought to be beauty, like a mask we put on. beauty is not just in the eye of the beholder, true beauty is all in the head, yours and mine. Thought provoking poem can you tell! Good read, although difident glares at me and broke my flow. Wake up girl smell the coffee, you are truly beautiful I want to yell

      It's odd that I came across this today as I'm reviewing the book "No Body's Perfect" I implement self esteem curriculum in my class. I've been on all sides of the body image issue, and somehow came to grips with mine by marrying someone who'd gone through the same thing. It's very hard to change how you see yourself, but we often get so stuck that we miss the best things around us. You did wonderful job showing us the picture, but I'm not sure we get the emotion that could go with it. This left me feeling no sympathy for the girl only a dissatisfaction that she chooses not to see.
