I really like this, and so many of us women/girls can relate to being in fitting rooms trying on clothing, and how you made such a mundane situation into a poem about the frustration of trying to conform to people's expectations. I like the last stanza "if only..." to me it says if only a person's inner self can be seen. Very nice!

I find this brilliant. I'm new to fictionpress, and I thought it would be a good outlet to share my poems, and read others. This is an extremely powerful poem, relatable to many. "ten times the person, ten times the world."

Just. wow. :) Inner beauty has never been so eloquently stated

Correction: 'to' should be 'too' in the second stanza, sixth line.

Again, a very interesting theme to portray. It is quite short but I do get the impression of the narrator struggling to break free from social constraints. I'm not sure about the last part of the line though. A little vague?
