Confidence Part 2

Confidence...it is something I no longer have.
Obviously I never will.
Nobody could possibly understand.
Furious with my mom, furious with myself.
I hate the way I am, the way I look. 
Deep down, I know I am beautiful as personality goes, but in my opinion I lack outer beauty.
Even though some people try and tell me different, too many others have agreed with me.
Never have I been able to look in a mirror without feeling disgusted.
Crying is something I do often.
Everyday I pray that someone will want me, in spite of who I am, and everyday I am sadly 
disappointed.

    true beauty comes from within:from who you are, what you stand for ,what you believe, and put into practice.Don't ever let someone else dictate to you who you are.the most beautiful flowers grow wild in the field, for those who can find them.Adorn yourself with love, and love will be yours.

    Beauty is only outward but inner beauty shines forth in so many ways that it actually radiates. Keep writing. Sara
