just.... poetry

I don't want to be THAT girl

THAT girl worries about her weight

THAT girl can't listen to a song connected to a painful memory

THAT girl sits in her room and cries

THAT girl who no longer enjoys reading

THAT girl who has lost her happiness

But sometimes, I am THAT girl.....

 

I want to be THIS girl

THIS girl knows shes beautiful on the inside

THIS girl listens to her favorite song over and over

THIS girl runs in her backyard without shoes

THIS girl reads for a living

THIS girl searches for happiness... and finds it....

I want to be THIS girl

 

SHE is a GLOWSTICK

The only reason THIS girl can shine....

Is because THAT girl had been broken....

SHE is the OUTCOME

SHE became STRONGER

THIS girl is who I call ME

SHE is all I want to be.

Fantastic poem going from total lack of confidence to being comfortable with oneself. I think we'd all like to be THIS girl. Well done.

Thank you! This was one of those that you wrote late at night, but it expressed how your outlook of life is.

Beautiful!
When we're broken, it's up to us to piece ourselves back together, whether by ourselves or with help. But either way, we reassemble ourselves. Therefore, we better understand ourselves and appreciate what we are, what we're made of, and what we have. We can also improve what we're made of; toughen our skin and strengthen our heart. We gain a new perspective and a new understanding of ourselves.

Yes, exactly, even when we are broken, we can always put ourselves back together, and be stronger for it.

She's everything you want to be, but honestly, I think you ARE this girl. Maybe you don't know it yet, maybe you aren't 100% sure about it, but you most definitely fit the criteria. Just continue to work on your confidence and how you feel about yourself and you'll get there in no time. People will try pushing you down, that's for sure, but ignore them. Get back up and keep going. Well done, Evie :)
