     She looked in the mirror and said “I wish I was thin,”

“then I could be normal like my friend Jen

I wouldn’t be picked on about my size

and maybe more people would know I am alive

     If I were thin I bet I would be popular like those girls

the kind that are graceful and do flips and twirls

I wouldn’t have to worry about fitting in

all if only I was thin

     The measuring tape says I am too wide

and the scale says my number is to high

the mirror screams that I take up too much space

and the school bus seat exclaims about my weight

I really like who I am inside

and wish that others could appreciate me,” she shrugged and sighed

      No one knew about the pain she felt within

over her struggle of wanting to be thin

She never actually saw herself for the beauty that was

because she was too busy thinking she was never good enough

but she is brilliant, she is one of a kind

not based on any merit or credit earned over time

but simply because she’s a unique creation of God

His treasure and beloved, will she ever know this thought?
