Self Perception

I was led to a difficult self perception.
One where I must binge and purge,
and starve myself to fit in.
I had to be perfect to be seen by the rest of the world.
I was led to a deceiving self perception.
One that said I must give in,
and must give my body to be accepted.
I had to let myself go and free my inhibitions.
I was led to a sorrowful self perception.
One that told me I must never show my woes,
and if I did I would be judged.
I had to keep it deep inside and slowly kill my soul.
I was led to a misguided self perception.
One that told me I must be self righteous,
I must not show my shame.
I had to act as if I had no sinful thoughts and died over and over again.
I now am led to a lovely self perception.
One that tells me I can be me,
and that I don't have to give myself away.
I now know my self worth because of HIS beautiful ways.
