Can I tell you

something?

I don't feel

how I look.

I don't feel

like you

look at me.

I look in the mirror

sometimes

And I am shocked.

The way

I am

looks bad.

Looks not

quite right.

Looks

out of bounds.

Looks the opposite

of strong

smart

creative

funny

serious,

Etc., Etc., blah, blah.

But can I tell you

something?

I feel strong.

Sometimes I actually

feel strong & good &

like my life

is okay.
