Blaming my Body

My Own Issues

Just once she wishes

The mirror in front of her

Would break

So she wouldn’t have to accept


And torture herself

With all her faults

It’s her outside

Staring back at her

But her faults

Aren’t physical

She doesn’t like what she sees

But she knows

Her body

Isn’t to blame

She uses it as a cover

It hides

Her emotions

And pain

That’s wrecking her


So she tries to blame

Her reflection

For her unhappiness

Yet her true faults

Aren’t on the outside

She tries to pretend

If she looked different

Things would be fine

But the truth is

Her body

Will never change

Until her inner faults


And melt away
