Sometimes I am confused
over the person I am
and
the person I see
when I look in the mirror:
these legs, these arms, these breasts,
this same old tired skin.
Is this the me that I am?

I remember when I was a little girl
and I thought being older would be
the best thing in the world: so beautiful
that I would shine like a star- people hovering
just to be near.....
I always had an overactive imagination.

Disjointed now in reality
I am disappointed with the image-
stuck in a body that has never been loved
I tell myself it doesn't matter
but the image talks back
and lets me know that it does-

I've never been pretty
I've always been plain-

except on the inside
except
on
the
inside.


"And I always thought I would be... a stronger girl than the one that lives in me..." M.K.

"To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance..." Oscar Wilde

why is it so depressing to see your work with a big fat zero next to it?

Hey don't get discouraged just because no one has replied yet. I don't know where you are but here in California it's a beautiful hot day. I just came in from the sun myself. I'm sure most people are getting ready to go out now. I'm sure you'll get a response later. You've done a fine job. Personnally I only do this for fun. I can't write at all and would never ever show my lame poems to my friends or family.

Hang in there Christina, there is not always a correlation between the quality of the poem and the number of responses. It is far more important how you feel about your poetry.

I like this a lot, Christina! I feel like this at times and this poem struck me. (sorry about the no responses! I've been outside all day long, nice weather here!) Anyways, wonderful job, I can't wait for more!
