*as Women - Poem by Jane Meyer

As women,
why are we never satisfied?
If our hair is brown,
we want blonde.
If it’s wavy,
we want straight.
If it’s short,
we want long.
If our eyes are green,
we want blue.
If we are tall,
we want to be shorter.
And no matter what size we are,
we always want to be thinner.

I’ve thought about all this,
and’ve even thought I’ve truly needed some.
But not that long ago,
I looked in the mirror,
and I liked what I saw.
Sure my hair could’ve been straighter,
and my waist could’ve been thinner.
But for the first time in my life,
I was happy with my body,
just the way it was.

    This is an eternal question - yet you seem to have addressed it rather well. When you like
    yourself, you will find it easier to accept others. (Report) Reply
