OUR REASONING, by Emily E. B.

I’m not pretty,
Not in your eyes anyway,
I can feel good about myself though,
Or I could,
But that’s hard when you look at me like you do,
It’s hard when you criticize my looks,
It’s hard when you make fun of me for being smart,
It’s hard when you tell rumors that aren’t true at all,
It’s hard,
But that doesn’t keep me from trying to love myself and others,
Because I don’t want to hate or discriminate,
I don’t want to hate myself
Like you hate yourself
