More Than Enough - Poem by Jackie Osae

Looking in the mirror
Gave me such horror
It just reminded me
How inadequate I am

Why I am not slim
Like the neighbour next door
Why I don't have a pretty face
And smiles that still a gaze

Maybe, just maybe
People might like me more
If I seem to have it all!

In my misery
I realise the futility
Why, tell me, why do I have to be
Anything else but the person that is Me

Why, this is me
The only me there can be!
And I am enough
More that enough!

    It helps to always be who you are because you are you, no one else. Personality is important not just looks. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
