insecurity

why don’t you think you’re beautiful?

girl with curly hair and deep brown eyes, as dark as the night sky

girl with pretty brown skin that glows when you’re overjoyed

girl with a big bright laugh and hands that reach out for a love
you see the world through your tortoise rimmed glasses and sigh at your insecurities

“why aren’t my lips bigger, why isn’t my ass bigger, why isn’t my stomach flatter”

“why am I so awkward, why do i push people away, why won’t anyone love me”

you love yourself but you aren’t sure if others love you
there’s nothing like being lied to. 

there’s nothing like one insult to tear down three million and three different compliments. 

compliments on how ________ you are… are used to uplift you and leave your soul vulnerable for the taking
you are beautiful

and it doesn’t matter if others lie. 

you. me.

  1. ” there’s nothing like one insult to tear down three million and three different compliments ” so true
    All you have to do is be confident of yourself , and put in mind that the only opinion that u really care about is yours
