When you look in the mirror
what do you see?
is the person whose looking back
the person you want to be?
Maybe you wish you were a bit taller
maybe you wish your ears were smaller
perhaps you would like to change your nose
have better feet and nicer toes
Maybe you wish you had a more attractive face
wider hips and a thinner waist
maybe you would like a broader chest
a flatter tummy and bigger breast
Many things about your body
you could complain about
you are unhappy with they way
you turned out
The way you look to others
might cause you to feel rejected
all you want is to fit in, be loved and accepted
If that's they way you were made
then what can you do?
First you have to start loving yourself
and then others will start loving you.
