• "Ugly!" he titled me
    and laughed at my pain
    Seeing me flinch
    at my new name.

    The bathroom door locks,
    I am inside.
    Looking at myself,
    is my body too wide?

    My nose is too big,
    Acne paints my face.
    My hairs a rat's nest.
    Oh, what a mess!

    Mom drives me to school
    Knew just what to say,
    which was pretty kool.

    "I love you Maasa,
    inside and out.
    Your so beautiful,
    and so is your heart."

    heart The End heart
