Im Not Beautiful - Poem by Sherice Malcolm

She’s beautiful, she’s beautiful, she’s beautiful too
But no one my love, is more beautiful than you
These words I hear, all the time
But when I compare my face to theirs
It feels like a lie

Their faces carved by angles, and then just mine
More difference than similarities
We look nothing alike

Difference is good, but not always
Compared to them
I feel like a disgrace

I try to look like them
He tells me no
Is he afraid to lose me if I reach my full potential?
