Am I Pretty Enough Now?


...
I once knew this girl,
she loved this boy oh so much,
finally one day,
she got the courage to tell him,
exactly how she felt.
...
Only to find out,
that the boy didn't like her in that way,
and everyday she would ask him why?
then one day,
he told her the reason,
he said'Because your not pretty! '.
...
She sat there,
after he left,
crying her heart out,
then her mom calls,
says'sweetheart, come home a few hours early'.
...
So on that faithful day,
she comes home early,
goes in the bathroom,
and knows exactly what she's going to do,
finally a few hours later,
her mom comes home,
only to find....
...
The hallway flooded,
she goes in the bathroom,
water over flowing,
tinted red,
and finds her daughter laying in the tube,
cuts on her face and wrists.
...
She runs out the bath,
screaming going to call the cops,
when she notice's something written on the mirror,
and it says'Am I Pretty Enough Now? '.
...
I know this tale is sad,
but here's what you can learn,
no matter who you are,
boy or girl,
don't put anyone in this situation,
cuz you'll end up living with this thought,
for the rest of your life......

    Oh Ashley, anytime i read your poetry i always try to place myself in the shoes. Actually, if i happened to be the boy, i do not think I will be happy for the rest of my life because i am the cause of her death. I will learn from that and i will make sure to accept any girl for who she is.
    I feel that no matter how ugly someone may be, there is no one that is ugly, because some may be ugly outside but very beautiful inside. But it is so sad that the poetry ended that way, but i tell you, that is the best way because it is a poem. And that makes it a very nice and touching poetry.
    Good effort, and i am glad that you are back....................... (Report) Reply
