If I could

See myself

For who I really am

And not someone

Who is less than her friends


If I could

Look in the mirror

And love everything I saw

And not compare myself

To the magazine girl


If I could

Do everything

I wanted to do

Not feel like

Time is limited


If I could

Talk less

And listen more

So I would learn

From those around me


If I could

Love myself

For who I am today

And not who

I want to be tomorrow
