Self Esteem Poem

Staring in the mirror,

Once again,

A never ending war,

Another day to settle,

On the reflection,

Staring back at me.

                Scars on my back, stomach, and side,

Evidence of my pressure sore, and trache also,

“My battle wounds,”

Of my Medical War,

Taunting me,

As they still are so evident.

                The Squishy, poor posture,

That prevents me,

From feeling beautiful,

And having that “model look”

In crop tops and bikinis;

                Physical differences rearing their ugly faces,

Evident and tormenting me.

I punch the reflection, then yell,

Holding my hand now,

I sit back and think,

Back on my life,

And suddenly smile.

                All the wonderful people in my life,

Some I wouldn’t have met,

If I had not had,

The bad physical disability that I had.

                The lives I’ve touched,

The people I’ve inspired,

How I gave others hope,

Why can’t I do that for myself?

I suck down the “poor Pitiful me” party,

And break another smile,

I am thankful for everyone in my life,

Because even though,

I am not “normal,”

They are in my life,

                Love me, and make my life,

Which would otherwise be lonely, cloudy, and grey,

Shine with a beauty bright.

  1. Hi, I check your new stuff like every week.
    Your writing style is witty, keep up the good work!
    I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours nowadays,
    yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s lovely worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will probably be much more useful than ever before.
    Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the
    same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
