116 (who?)
I just want to be pretty.
Like him, like her...
I want the face that
Everybody loves.
I want the body that
Everybody craves.
Why is she so skinny?
Why is she so curvy?
Why is he so handsome?
Why is he so perfect?
I just want to be sexy.
Like him, like her...
I want to fit in my
Old jeans and dresses
That I wore in high school.
I want to walk by to
Have people whisper,
"That girl is gorgeous."
I just want to be thin.
Like him, like her...
Why are they so lucky?
Why do they get the glory?
Why do they get that body
And that face without
Even working for it?
You know the feeling
Of being called ugly,
Unless you're one of them.
I know the feeling
Of being called ugly,
Cause I'm not one of them.
I put on makeup to
Make myself look different.
I'm ashamed at my
Natural face.
My parents were pretty,
So why not me?
I just want to be pretty.
Like him, like her....
i really feel this way

Reitanna,your beautiful just the way you are you have pretty clothes, beautiful hair, and a great personality. Just because other people are popular and pretty doesn't mean you are not. :)

I know how it feels, I'm 19 and pretty much a twig. Short and awkward and not one of the sexy girls at all. But as long as you're a good person, people will see beyond your looks. Just stop caring.

You are just writing out what I feel ._.
But I seriously believe that you aren't ugly. I guess some people just have this kind of confidence issues though they don't need to (cause there's nothing wrong with them or how they look). Well it's easier to just say this than to really feel and believe it ..

Don't feel bad about the way you look. It's the inside that matters, not the outside. :hug:

I really don't use make up so much anymore because I don't think I'm pretty even with it.

I also stopped going anywhere. I haven't felt alive in a long time. I'm too scared to go anywhere.

All because of the pretty people who constantly told me I was ugly.

I don't want to be a pretty if perfection outside makes you that ugly inside.

Thank you pretty people for ruining my life.

plus after seeing your pictures you're not even fat or ugly.

There's always something more.

I know it isn't the same, but I feel this as a gamer. I watch some gaming videos and go into online matches (usually TF2), and I see people just wipe the floor with everyone else (myself occasionally included), and I think "Why can't I be like that guy? What am I doing wrong?" And I know this is a bad thought process to have, since if you always try to live up to lofty goals you'll always be disappointed. It's better to take it slow. If you worry how other people will view you without makeup...all I can say is don't. I know that sounds like really bad advice, but no matter what you do, there'll always be that one smartass who says "Hey! Ugly asshole!". They won't stop, and it's best to just ignore them. Pretend they're not even there; put them on mute.

This is my first very favorite poem. I find a big meaning on it.

Well, I know it's different for everybody, but...If I think about other people and how I like their flaws, it helps me to see how my own flaws aren't earth-shattering.

 I might see a man or a woman with belly chub or excessively hairy arms or something that isn't perfect, and I still think that they are GORGEOUS. And when I like somebody, and they have acne or they're short, I find myself loving that about them (even the acne!) Not to mention personality traits, somebody might be bossy or short-tempered or shy (by my standards even!) and I still find them wonderful.

I don't know, it's one thing to see beauty in others and another to see beauty in yourself. But I think it really helps! P.S. I think you look super, Rei, if it counts for anything! :)
