I wrote this poem in a creative writing class I had with Libby Jones a couple years ago.  It's meant to convey my frustration with women and girls who allow low self-esteem to consume them.  There are beautiful women out there who spend so much time worrying about what other people think that they forget to live.  

The illustration was done with watercolor and then adjusted on Adobe Illustrator.  


  1. Very powerful, Heather. I think you accomplished your objective. And it's a good reminder to appreciate ourselves! :)

  2. This sounds like many of my daughter's friends. Thanks for sharing it. And I hope you got a great picture book for Mother's Day!

    1. I did! I bought this darling book called "Again!" by Emily Gravett. You should check it out sometime. It's super cute.
