Because she is me…
Because I am her…
Because we are all fighting The Beast Inside

Cellulite Looks Better Tan

They say, “You’re not good enough.”

They say, “You’re not smart enough.”

They say, “Quit.”

They say, “What’s the point?”

They say, “If only you were…better.  If only you were funnier.  If only you were prettier.”

They say, “No one cares.”

They start off whispering little messages of doubt.  They quiet for a bit and allow the negativity to marinate, to percolate on their acrimony.  Then they start again, louder, full of malice and greed, seeking to pull out every ounce of self respect and esteem, pursuing to leave me buried in self-loathing and malevolence.

Then they scream, “Just run away.  You will never be enough…”


I take a deep breath.   I see myself in the mirror.  The girl staring back at me is strong, smart, beautiful.  She is fucking good enough.

One thought on “THE BEAST INSIDE by Mandi

  1. FOR YOU

    You do not know how I feel,
    For your heart of gold and nerves of steel.
    You will not ever understand,
    What it means to me to hold your hand.

    Your caring face, your kind concern,
    Your helping hand at every turn,
    When you are standing by my side,
    Woes vanish, all tempests subside.

    You help me out in life’s extremes,
    You are the Adonis of my dreams.
    I can trust you with my soul, my heart,
    Of my very existence, you are a part.

    Pure brilliance of your eyes, your smiling face,
    Fuels the fire of my love ablaze.
    Every nerve, every vein of mine asserts,
    I love you so much, that it hurts.

    I still do not know who you are,
    And as humans, we have no power,
    To know if God did predestine..
    I will be yours, you will be mine…

    I know that we will meet someday,
    And it is for you that I write today,
    For the one who did my heart ensnare,
    For the one I love, for the one I’ll care….
