Unpretty - Poem by Marcquiese Burrell

Take one look in the mirror
and feel disgusted, there's somethings I wish could be changed
it is destructive, to make the arrangements to never look the same
this how I feel, As I grow familiar
with the voice inside my head, that says,
I want to look perfect. my spirit is broken
haven't been this vocal, but, the arguments potent
they say, accept your flaws
beauty is skin deep, that's not the image i see in magazines.
It's enough to make you feel empty
and you start to feel unpretty
