You show my true self

Others though

Say I'm beautiful

Pretty and even gorgeous

Yet every time

I look at you

I don't see that

I see something

That I just don't like

It's hard to explain to others

But you get me

you see the same thing

i'm not as confident

In myself when I look at you

I doubt myself

And my abilities

I wear baggy clothes

They feel safe to hide in

I become obsessed

With my little white scale

Watching the numbers

Go both up and down

Yet never stopping on just one

It's quite frustrating

I never know which one I am

I'm glad I can always

Trust in you

To show me who

I really am
