A poem:

I work on myself daily
Sometimes that isn’t enough
I look in the mirror and things get tough
Are you really happy is what I say to myself
I put on a smile because what can I do
I’m trying to be a much better me
So much pain that no one can see
Yes I’m okay just getting myself together
I have to smile because no matter how I feel who would understand
It’s just a matter of time for me to see
The smile on my face really isn’t me

  1. Hello! I was in search of blog like yours and the vulnerability of thus poem really moved me in a deeper way ❤ I very much understand how you feel, it’s very hard to fully accept ourselves. Sometimes, it takes our whole lives! But the most important thing is that we’re working on it and that we’re aware of it, bit by bit. And admire you for that! Can’t wait for your next posts! 🙂

  2. This is a beautiful poem. It’s astonishing the shared attitudes we all possess when it comes to this poem’s subject matter. We are all a work in progress. The key is being deliberate about reminding ourselves of that and finding ways to see the beauty of ourselves that lies within. Thank you for sharing your work and your heart.
