Beauty Within

This is a reverse poem. Please read it first from top to bottom and then from bottom to top.

I need to lose weight to look beautiful

Don’t tell me that

I am beautiful, the way I am

Because when I look in the mirror

I hate myself

And I won’t lie and say that

The beauty inside me is what matters

Because I will always see that

I am fat and ugly

And nothing you say will make me believe that

I am worthy

Because at the end of the day

I am ashamed of my body

It’s a lie that

Beauty exists within me

And I will constantly remind myself that

Being thin is the key to my happiness

And I refuse to believe that

I deserve love

Because no matter what

I can no longer love the girl in the mirror

And no one can convince me that

I am good enough.
