Poetry: Comfortable in my own skin

by admin on June 20, 2013

It’s taken me years to be

Comfortable in my own skin

Too many demons plagued me,

Both from outside and within.

I tried to change;

That only led to illness.

My size was never good enough

Nor was my chosen dress.

Once I realised,

At long last,

There’s no pleasing everyone,

I left attempts at conformity in the past.

I am finally free

To truly be me, both outside and in,

The me I was meant to be,

And I am comfortable in my own skin.
