10.14.19 Pretty Ugly, by A. Shoaib

Our inner talk and how we feel about ourselves is very important. Take a moment to think about how you are treating yourself on a daily basis.

Read this brilliant poem written by A. Shoaib top to bottom.  Then read it again bottom to top!

I’m very ugly

So don’t try to convince me that

I am a very beautiful person

Because at the end of the day

I hate myself in every single way

And I’m not going to lie to myself by saying

There is beauty inside of me that matters

So rest assured I will remind myself

That I am a worthless, terrible person

And nothing y

ou say will make me believe

I still deserve love

Because no matter what

I am not good enough to be loved

And I am in no position to believe that

Beauty does exist within me

Because whenever I look in the mirror I always think

Am I as ugly as people say?

Now read it again bottom to top!

Isn’t the second read through a lot better way to think and see yourself?!

Ya’ll have a Blessed Week!
