we do not look alike.

59 10 4

They say we look alike

But she is beautiful

Her hair shined

Her skin glowed

Her heart happy

But I am ugly

My skin is dim

My heart is scarred

She is tall

She is skinny

She is pretty

I am short

I am fat

I am ugly

“We do not look alike”

“yeah, because she is pretty.”

It shot through my chest.

I was not pretty.

I was not worthy

Why are they comparing me to her

When she is unblemished and

I am bruised

We do not look alike.
