“My Confidence” Poem of the Day (2022)

“My Confidence”

By Ashley O’Hare

Those girls have such steady hands-

they apply make up like an artist.

I could never look like that,

even when I try my hardest.

The imperfections on my skin

refuse to be hidden.

My confidence has quickly diminished;

feeling good is strictly forbidden.

Maybe if my wallet

was lined with some extra cash,

I could afford a mirror

that is not as brash.

When self confidence goes on sale,

I will be waiting at my door for the mail.

Until then, I’ll shut my eyes

and look for beauty inside.
