we have so many images in our heads
and hearts
comparing our looks with the mainstream
boobs too small
butt too fat
skin too pale
too many wrinkles
that’s what our mirrors say
no that’s only yourself
comparing critically
with the contemporary ideal of beauty
looking in the mirror

you are more than your outer appearance
you are more than your feelings
you are outside and inside
plus x
you are unique

(Volker Schunck)
