To the Critical One

“We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That’s what connects us–that we’re all broken, all beautifully imperfect.” ― Emilio Estevez

She’s the one who has a crush;
On a friend who says he loves another…

She doesn’t have a lot of boys hitting on her
Although, she doesn’t understand when they actually do…

She is 21 & has never been kissed,
Never been on a date or ever asked out…

She doesn’t remember when she did,
fall head over heels in love with him…

It was crazy the way her heart would beat,
every single time he greeted her…

Every time she wanted to ask him out;
She ran to the bathroom to remind herself,
How ugly and pudgy she had become…

She assumed she isn’t the kind of girl
any guy would want to date,
let alone her friend who is simply perfect..

What she didn’t realise was that like everyone else;
She is human with a heart & soul,
That’s just as pure & white
as the winter snow…

She was so critical & negative about herself;
She couldn’t see the beauty in the world itself…

That her crush is just as human as she is
That he has his own insecurities as she does…

That it doesn’t matter what you look on the outside;
It doesn’t diminish your value on the inside…

That he too wanted to ask her out;
But he was scared as she was just perfect…

If only she loved herself a little more
she would’ve known,
how beautiful she truly was…

It wasn’t her figure, face or grace
but it was ‘something’ about her
that attracted him to her instead…

It was the positivity she radiated and
her smile that he loved;
the fact that she was smart & kind
and that she laughed all the time…

If only she wasn’t so critical;
she would’ve known,
how beautiful she truly was…
