Insecure Beauty 

You stare in the mirror

But cannot see

The radiance staring 

Back at thee
Your beautiful curves

Defy your gaze 

You don’t understand

All this praise
Left feeling unwanted
By all those prior

How can you be

My hearts desire 
You stare in the mirror

But cannot see

The radiance staring

Back at thee

The Mirror Lies

I have told many people this in my life, this piece of pseudo-wisdom that I myself believe but am unable to apply to my own life.
The Mirror Lies
Those of us with self-esteem issues, body image issues, or just general insecurity do not see an accurate reflection of ourselves. It is like looking in a funhouse mirror, the image is warped and distorted. We see every blemish, every scar, every bad decision, every mistake we have ever made. We see these things our “ugliness” manifested on the outside reflecting how we feel about ourselves and our lives. It does not matter that the rest of the world doesn’t see it, because we do.. That is our reality.
But like I said
The Mirror Lies
Because if there was someone standing right there looking directly at us, not at our reflection in that funhouse mirror. They would see our beauty, they would see someone confident and deserving of love and affection.
To those of you that feel broken, ugly, and undeserving I give you this challenge..
Don’t Listen To The Mirror’s Lies
Instead take the time and make the effort, to see yourself through the eyes of others. Allow yourself to feel as beautiful and amazing as you truly are.
