A poem on what I see in the mirror. I’m sick of holding it in, so here you go.

You're not fat!
Girls would awe. 
You’re of healthy weight.
Mom would reassure.
That’s just hormones.
Dad would dismiss.

I didn’t listen or 
I listened
but didn’t believe.

You’re fat!
The monsters would say.
Gross!
Not enough!


I shouldn’t listen but
I listened 
and believed. 

The funny thing was
there were no monsters. 
I’m the only monster here.

    you don't need a mirror, gosh damn it when some idiot created one, people should know that they are so beautiful, despite what a mirror thinks. if you look half as good as you write, then i think your going to be just like one of my best friends who is literally so gorgeus. your writing is beautiful, and so are you!

    This sounds kind of like depression or anxiety. I’m not sure if it has to do with one of those or if it’s just about body image. Just remember that everyone is beautiful, including you.
