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!

    Great! We've got to like ourselves the way we were made, we just have to take good care of who we are and still look beautiful and admirable. More than enough. Good one there (Report) Reply

    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
