    dotsBeautiful? (2)dots
    -------------------------------------------


    Looking in the mirror
    at the image distorted
    A girl not yet known to herself
    looking as hard as she posibly can

    She looks for what he sees
    Beauty?
    Thats what he calls this?
    This thing standing there
    not aware
    of her potencial
    of her worth

    She used to see ugly
    but not anymore...
    but beauty? that's going to far.
    When she looks at herself
    she sees no description
    only her

    "I am me. Nothing but me.
    What I'm worth
    I do not know."

    But he calls her beautiful
    "How can that be
    I'm just me. Not beautiful,
    not ugly,
    not plain,
    not pretty
    just me"

    She has much to look for
    and so much to see
    but she's stuck behind
    the lies from the past
    trapped by the images of others

    When will she see what he sees?
    When will she truely believe?

      It's beautiful. MAN that commenting thing gets on my nerve sometimes. Honestly all I want to say is that It's beautiful. Is that not enough sometimes? Ok well seeing as I must write a long comment I'll say this: I don't usually like poems without rhymes but yours really touched me because it flowed so well and the story was something so real? Like so many teenage girls are that girl standing in front of the mirror! I love it, just the way it is... not that I'm the expert on non rhyming poems but yer... Good work :) I'm sorry about my little outburst :P

      This poem consists of multible possible meanings or simutaneusly having others as well.What they are somewhat puzzling to me , but it is good anyway.
    I am almost positive that the meaning(s) of this piece are not being able to see yourself as highly as others portray you as.
    Also , even through the..

    "the lies from the past
    trapped by the images of others,"she still has someone that loves her.

    this poem is contenting , but maybe give it a few tweaks if you find it neccesary.However,it is still exceptionally good as it is.(there are a few spelling errors.)
