Little Perfectionist

Looking into the portal of reflection Frowning at what I see Not settling for what is upon me Striving for only perfection Scrolling through instagram Looking at all the pretty girls Wishing I looked perfect like them They’re like beautiful pearls Shining so bright in the moonlight Smiling from ear to ear My life is becoming worse because of this website This idea needs to disappear To make the change I need to wake up Know no one is perfect They’re all caked in makeup It’s all incorrect They look like different people without it Why is this all textbook They are being hypocrites Saying to embrace how you look Why is this so fucking difficult Trying to love myself I feel so insignificant Like I’m just another book on the shelf Nobody wants to read anymore It’s all movies I’m just a bore I lack beauty I can’t think like this If I want to be happy I have to get out of this oceanic abyss I want this so badly

I can't believe I'm the first to comment about this cry for acceptance. You are worthy. The media focuses on the good looking but the rest of us have so much more to offer. Keep up the good work.
