Today I feel exposed
Insecure, lashing out at the mirror
Wrinkles I see, an unshapely nose
Depressed, hating the person that I am
I am the ugly duckling, for sure.
Today I keep to myself
Diffident, I am at my lowest point.
My protruding belly, and an unsightly breakout
Unhappy, I am crushed, falling to my knees
I am the ugly duckling, here to disappoint.
Today I declare revamping
Concerned, I feel the urge to change me
Dreaming of a curvy behind and a porcelain face
I will starve myself in hope of a weight drop
I am the ugly duckling, I hate me.
Today I can’t do anything
Unworthy, I give up, what’s the use
Hide your mirrors, cover up your lenses.
If you wish not to see the hag
I am the ugly duckling,
But go easy with your verbal abuse.
