It will never be enough

You always have to be

skinnier so people will like you
prettier so people will like you
smarter so people will like you
sexier so people wil like you

but i was so young
i didn't understand
why am i never enough?

My love they said
once we tweeze your brows
once you lose some weight
you will be beautiful

So i looked in my mirror everynight
sucking my tummy in
imagining how i should be

Years went on
I wish i could say

i am enough

but i can't

i still look in the same mirror every night
and think

i will never be enough
