If only I was...


Hate my nose, Big nose. 

Hate my ears, Big ears.

Look like a rat,

so insecure!

I'm just so ugly, 

why can't I be like the pretty girls,

If your pretty, your well known,

Not me!

Don't really have real friends,

Don't have a best friend. 

Probably be a loner for the rest of my life,

If only I was...

    I don’t know what you actually look like but, I’m pretty sure you don’t look like a rat.
    I’m not sure of your age but, I’m willing to guess that you are very young.
    I felt the same way , from age 12 to about 17.
    Then, I found me.
    No, I wasn’t “ Like all the other pretty girls “!
    And better for it!
    I realized I was beautiful, and funny, smart, and creative.
    Anyone worth knowing, would rather be around a real person, with several qualities.
    Rather than just a”Pretty Girl”.
    I bet you’re beautiful!
    Stop looking so critically in the mirror and believe that you’re beautiful:)

      Thank you Resa for your sweet comment. Yes I am young, I\'m only 16 and I still need to find myself. From now on every time I look into the mirror I am going to recognise my beauty instead of my flaws. x


      WELCOME NUANA (LOVELY NAME !) Thanks for your first poem ~ well penned but with a very self-effacing content ! Over the last 17 years I have dated a variety of ladies and to me they have all had "inner beauty" that outshines their outward physical appearance ~ which has been varied ! I am a Science Lecturer and my current GF Angela is a Physiotherapist so we have similar interests in Applied Science. I trust someone will come into you life ~ who loves you for yourself ! Thanks for sharing ~ BRIAN
