There are times

when you might hate your body

for being so fat or thin.


There are times

when you might hate the scars

on you skin.


There are times

when you might feel like

existing is a sin.


But in those times,

tell yourself,

“You are beautiful”,

even with all your flaws;

you are still beautiful.


Because that is the only way,

that you will ever be able to win,

the war that is raging within.


The next time you walk past a mirror,

Stop for a moment and look in the mirror,

Look at the woman standing there before you and smile.

Tell her she’s beautiful,

Tell her you love her,

Tell her you are so proud of her.

She needs to hear it from you first before coming from someone else.

The poem is about accepting the reality instead of crying over it.
