    I'm Not A Beauty

    I'm not common looking, yet maybe it would be a better thing than looking like me. I miss somewhat that in life, to be beautiful. It's not the more important to me, I prefer to be good and intelligent, but... Being pretty would be a good thing to socialize. It's sad to say that...

    Reflection

    I see mine every day.  I know what I see.  I see a woman in her 30's who has had 3 kids.  I see a mess. It's shallow and selfish, I know.  But I always wanted to be beautiful.  Instead, I have always been the ugly duckling.  Growing up I truly was...

    Beautiful Society

    I realized it not so long ago. But now, it's taking all my time.When I'm at school, I see all these girls: they are happy, they are beautiful, they have friends. I'm not beautiful: nobody wants to be with me, so i'm sad... It took time for me to see it, until people told it to me...

    And I Continue To Wish

    When I was a kid, I always thought I was ugly. There was no doubt in my mind that I was. When I was 10, my mom told me I was ugly everyday. The first time anyone ever told me I was pretty (and I believed them) was in high school. One day, a girl confessed that she only ever...

    Can Never See Past The Mask

    It's hard to see a beautiful flower covered in a mass of weeds; that's exactly how I feel at times. Not that I think I'm a beautiful flower, but I'm saying it's hard to love yourself when you're hidden behind a mask you don't like. I hate going into public, I hate looking people...

    I'm Not As Confident As I Seem

    I've never been anything special and i'm not claiming to be. I just want to be cherished, loved and held like no one has ever been held before. I want to be told that everything is going to be ok, and that I shouldn't worry so much. I want someone to hold my hand even though i'm...

    There is nothing I want more

    than to be beautiful. I want to be stunning, to drop jaws and to turn heads. Instead, I look in the mirror with disgust. I wish I could cut huge chunks of flesh from my form; dig my nails in and rip away that which weighs me down. I feel imprisoned by my own body. Locked in a...

    If Only...

    I would give up everything I have to be beautiful. To know what it's like to walk around and have people think, "Wow that guy is gorgeous," is all I could ever ask for. For me, being beautiful is more fulfilling than having all the money you could want. Being beautiful means you...

    Inside Or Out

    Outside Im just not. No two ways about it. Im not glamourous, or beautiful, or any of that stuff. Inside Im just as ugly. I get angry, I get jealous, I dont have that dignity, that grace, that self assurance.

    I am not beautiful. I'm not even cute. My boyfriend would disagree and while I'm grateful to him, I still wallow in my little pool of self-pity. Every day, I look in the mirror and think, "If only my breasts were bigger." "If only my eyes were prettier." "If only I didn't have...
