Self Love is Hard

I wish along with
Countless articles
On how to lose weight
And how to eat ‘right’,
Someone bothered to tell
People how to love your body.

Because no matter
How much weight I lose
Or no matter how little
Food I consume,
I can never bring myself
To accept my body.

I panic every time
The scale goes upward.
I compare myself
To every girl that
Walks past me,
Wishing I had this
And I had that,
Never being able to
Appreciate what I have.

I hope one day,
I’ll be able to look
At myself in the mirror,
And just be content
With what I see.
