Better Than

My reflection doesn’t make eye contact.
I thought this was over.
Hold your head up.
Sometimes it’s a thought we can’t shake.
The plague of not feeling good enough.
If only the thoughts were “you are better than.”
It is a long process.
Along the way others poison your mind.
“You’re not skinny enough.”
“Don’t you smile?”
“You’re too short.”
Block it out.
Hold your head above the negativity.
You are better than.
