Foolish Girl - Poem by Jessica Elizondo

She stands infront of the mirror and looks apon herself and doesn't like what she sees. She puts on coats and coats of makeup because she thinks she looks more beautiful with it on. After she outs on the makeup she looks back into the mirror, smiles, and says quietly to herself, 'Now I'm pretty.' She goes to school but isn't fond of he weight, so she wears hoodys and t-shirts and jokes about her weight with her friends so she won't feel so bad. She goes home and eats a few snacks, but isn't full so she eats dinner followed by another snack. After that she feels so fat and she hates herself for eating too much and vows that the next day will be different, and she won't eat too much, but she fails. Then she takes posed pictures of herself on her phone and sends them to a few people including her friends, to see if shes pretty in their eyes. and after all that she loses sight of whats really important, she has lost whats real. Instead she thought she was ugly, when God made her beautiful. She didn't know that God doesn't make ugly creations. Also she thought she needed the approval from others to feel like she was worth something, but she didnt realize that that approval of God is more important. She didnt realize that how others judge you doesn't matter, but what matters is judgement day, he day we're judged for our actions on earth. Foolish girl, I pray for you, I pray that you can find whats really important in life not what others tell you is important. I pray you will stop being negative and start loving yourself and the life that God has gracously given you. He knows you have a purpose in this world, but you need to figure that out too.........Foolish girl....

    right on.
    outer beauty is a curse on the world.
    stay true to your inner self.
    forget what others say.
    you'd be amazed at how they view themselves.
    take it from a recovering underconfident boy.
