Stars are beautiful,

but I am not.

Roses are beautiful,

but I'll never be beautiful.

Love is beautiful,

but I can't be beautiful.

Mothers are beautiful,

but I am not.

Models are beautiful,

but I'm not them.

Heaven is beautiful,

but I am not there.

She is beautiful,

but I am not her.

My hair is beautiful,

but I'm not.

Inside is beautiful,

but somethings are not.

I thought the poem was nice however very repetative. Keep up the good work. I believe you have talent. It does not matter if people accept you what matters is if you accept yourself.

I like this poem because it reminds me of how our society can be focused on the outside. However remember that beauty is in the eye of beholder.
