Removing self-hate

by Yakari Gabriel   Feb 23, 2014


I know I'm a little young,
but I know what I want.
I have been waiting to be beautiful
my whole life.

puberty has proven to be
uninterested in a friendship with me
and I,
I sold well this year, I finally have enough cash for this
so here sir,

here is my body
mark these flaws until
they resemble something

make greatness out
of my breast
even if no man or woman
ever touches them again

my whole life, my whole life
I had been wanting this

cut and stretch until
I'm whole again,
until my thighs
become as distant as my
relationship with God

I don't mind the pain sir,
cut me, sew me, close me
up smaller

make me beautiful,
make me beautiful
even if I lose who
I truly am.

    Beauty comes from within. I have seen people who may be less appealing on the outside but their inner beauty makes them very pretty. Many spent money to fix the outside but that does not repair the inside.
    It is not easy and we do forget who we are at times but what is important that we love ourselves That's what I gather from this poem and I love it and enjoyed reading
