short poem

My eyes were overwhelmed

By the beauty of her face

How her hair shone in its bob cut

Not a strand was out of place

And when I walked beside her

I felt privileged to be there

I'd have walked a thousand miles

My time with her to share

Yet when she looked into the mirror

A different picture met her eyes

She could see just fat and ugly

And what she called thunder thighs

If I lived another lifetime

Trying to convince her of her mistake

It would have made no difference

She would still be in the lake

Don't let your mind deceive you

Or others who would tease

You are how you were meant to be

And you have no one to appease
