"From now on, I don't care if my tea leaves spell 'Die, Ron, die,' I'm chucking them in the bin where they belong." -Ron Weasley

Before their critical eyes she cowers
Expecting the worst of their judgements
Always afraid of the looks, the whispers
Under their gaze she worries and frets
The nervous thoughts race through her head

In her mind she is nothing

For the mirror tells the ugly truth

Underneath the scars lies a hidden soul

Lonely and scared, yet she is beautiful

this is so true!! way too many girls are insecure and think they're ugly when they're gorgeous!! you did a great job ending that message through you're poem. it's sad that girls don't embrace their beauty. all you can do is tell them the "beautiful" truth and hope that they will someday believe it!

This is very deep, yet simple to read and understand. I like it a lot. You should for sure write some more poetry!

Trying to be someone your not is a waste of the person you currently are.

This has so much emotion, but yet is still so simple in words. I love it says so much in such few words. good job
