I walk down the hallway

 

Making it look like everything is okay

 

But really inside of me

 

Everything is wrong

 

I know that beauty is supposed to be skin deep

 

But my insecurities get the best of me

 

I don’t think my face is pretty

 

I don’t think my hair is soft

 

I don’t think my body is right

 

I don’t think I’m “hot”

 

Every time I walk around school

 

I think of what other people say about me

 

I know they think I’m immature

 

But really I have been through so much

 

I try to be the real me  

 

But clearly that’s not what they want

 

I constantly get picked on

 

I get pushed down

 

And reminded of my insecurities

 

I find myself at home crying

 

Because I hate myself

 

I hate the way I look

 

I hate the way I act

 

I feel like nobody likes me

 

But after I fall into the black hole of my feelings

 

The only way I can go is up

 

So I push myself every morning

 

To stop crying

 

To stop feeling hurt

 

And I make sure

 

That when I’m with others

 

I don’t let them control what I think

 

I make sure I’m with the ones I love

 

The ones who like me for who I am

 

The friends that are real

 

And the family that is always there for me

 

And I just let them take me away

 

Away from the bullies

 

Away from my insecurities

 

And onward to happiness

    Beautiful poem, Riley. Honestly, you deserve more credit, you’re an amazing person and you are alright just the way you are. Don’t let anyone bring you down. Keep your optimistic mindset, that will lead you towards great things.
