Words (Poem)

You say I’m not beautiful,

Why should I believe you?

All that matters is that I think I’m beautiful,

So I’m leaving you,

I’m only listening to people who say I’m beautiful.


I don’t need to listen to an opinion that hurts me,

All I need to listen to are kind words,

It’s because I love me,

It’s because I only need loving words,

I don’t need words that hurt me.


I won’t apologize for walking away,

You won’t apologize for being mean to me,

You must be nice to me if you want me to listen and not walk away,

Show you respect me,

Or you won’t get me to stay.
