A good friend told me
to make a list.
Of what I like
and dislike
about
myself.

I laughed and told him
the list would be
one sided.

He was serious.
"Mariah, your depression is scaring me.
Please do this.
Please."

So I agreed.

-What I Like About Myself-
My smile.
My laugh.
My scars.
My cuts.
My bitchy humor.
My kindness when people truly need it.

-What I Hate About Myself-
My weight.
My scars.
My bitchy attitude.
My grades.
My depression.
My cuts.
My anger.

There's a list.
I hope he's happy.
