A great piece of rhyming poetry that is inspirational to anyone who has ever felt bad about themselves.
Some days I look upto the skies
and I wish like I never have before;
to be skinnier, taller, prettier even happier
then I realise there's no point anymore....
When we feel like this about ourselves, we often turn to that rather useless form of self-help: wishing! lol. It is often a sign of desperation and rarely does any good. To be fair, you seem to come to that conclusion yourself by the end of this stanza: 'then I realise there's no point anymore...." BUT, is that a positive 'I'm going to be me' realisation or a more depressing 'I give up trying'? I read on...
...because if I'm loved then so be it;
as it'll be for me being myself
So why should I change for anyone?
A break in the rhyme here (an original change) which also helps to isolate the important point you are making here which really is the crux of the poem and shows the positive thinking you have turned to: be loved for yourself and if people don't like you exactly the way you are, so be it!
Someone's out there, (you'll see)
searching for somebody like me.
Back to rhyme at the end in a defiant and inspirational couplet that lets us all know that you will find love but you will do so on your own terms and in your own skin.
Em, this is a lovely little piece of poetry that certainly has a twinge of sadness, but that is more than made up for with the defiance that calmly screams from it!
* quick point: 'upto' in the first line is two separate words.
Dear Em, you are a wonderful and beautiful person and no matter what we have endured in our past will define us. Please remain true to yourself and never change for anybody other then yourself. If people can accept you for who and what you are you don't need them in your life. This truly touched my heart and hugs and all the very best to you
You are a beautiful person inside and out. One day your Prince Charming will come along and sweep you off your feet. Everyone has a soul mate waiting for them you just tend to find them when you least expect them. Milly x
Em, don't ever change! At one time or another we all wish we could be taller, thinner, cuter, whatever. But, then we wouldn't be us and that would be tragic. You are a special, giving, loving person who someone would be truly lucky to be a part of your life. Hugs-
Though this is a short write it is very much filled with passion and heart. The use of ellipsis between the first and second stanza is interesting and incredibly powerful for being so subtle. The author's voice is clear, concise, and extremely calm considering the topic - which works out well. Something about this style and format screams "hi-light me in the weekly contest!" and that is exactly what it deserves. Nicely penned and creatively styled.
