    I looked in the mirror today......
    At 4p.m after I took my shower..
    Threw on some Pink Moisterizer
    Lotion,......

    I looked in the mirror today...
    Before I clother myself in...
    What I would practice in..later on at 6

    What I saw was.........sumthing..not so nice
    I looked at a face scarred with pimples..,
    A face with a glare of glasses,
    A going out of shape tummy line,
    Thighs getting better by the day so..
    I can't fit my body into no..size 11's,
    Feet that needed to be redone

    I looked in the mirror today....
    And I smiled......
    I looked at my soft hands..


    I looked into the mirror and..
    I saw my future....

    The hands that would be on a podium in front of thousands
    Reading a speech..or heck.reading my poetry
    my smiling face as I held my head high for my graduating pictures from high school...
    Not caring what anyone says about my skin...cuz I know it's just a phase and....Hey, I ain't perfect
    The belly that would hold some future poets in this world :)
    The thighs that my future husband would have absolutely no probelm with......

    I looked into the mirror............
    And I smiled and said.....


    Damm, I'm beautiful

    Inner beauty is a wonderful thing to posess,
    maintaining that inner peace is the hardest part of life.

    OMG!! I know maybe it wasn't suppose to have this effect but I am crying. This is so beautiful. I felt just as you did in my 9th grade year of highschool and I think that through this all you are such a beautiful poet thanks and I seriously mean thanks for blessing me with this piece I truly luv it.
