Value

So this is another poem, a style I haven't done before but I really enjoyed and I think is important for me.

I
                wish that I were beautiful
                maybe he wouldn’t have rejected me
                if I had been beautiful,
                if I had been skinny,
                if I had been sexy.

Am
                I the only one who feels this way?
                are there others that have also been rejected
                had their lives torn apart
                suddenly thrust into a new life
                that they didn’t order.

Valuable
                is all I want to be, but I feel like
                I have no value to anybody.
                I can feel the love surrounding me
                and I appreciate it, but it still feels like
                I am not worth being loved.

To
                look back fills me with regrets
                of things that could have been different
                Things I could have tried harder to change.
                maybe life could have been different
                Had I just tried harder.

God
                can work this together for good.
                I know that and yet still I doubt.
                in fact it is a promise he has made
                And yet I still doubt him.
                But deep down I want to speak truth to myself.
