I did not write the poem that inspired this challenge, I am just sharing it because I love it very much.

I'm very ugly

so don't try to convince me that

I am a 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 you 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 ?
 it from end to start, bottom up.... I love the idea of reverse poetry to say so many things. I didn't write this poem, but it really inspires me whenever I read it.


If anyone enters this contest, I will try to do something for them <3 . It's a challenge for fun, so I hope it inspires you, as a writer !

This is brilliant, Doc. A total turnaround when looked at upside down.
