I tried my best to please them all…


They said that I always looked too angry
So I shaved off my eyebrows

They said I always dressed bad
So I took off my clothes

They said I cried too much
So I burned out my eyes

They said I wasn't listening
So I tore off my ears

They said I always said the wrong things
So I ripped out my vocal cords

They said I always faked my smile
So I ripped off my lips

They said my hair was a mess
So I cut it off

They said my feet were too big
So I broke them

They said I walked weird
So I saw off my legs

They said I played too much with my fingers
So I pulled off my hands

They said my arms were too thin
So I tore them off

They said my belly looked funny
So I cut out my stomach

They said I sat funny
So I removed my hips

They said I breathe too loud
So I ripped out my lungs

They said I always hung with my head
So I tore it off

They said my skin tone was ugly
So I removed my skin

They said my muscles were weak
So I ripped them off the bones

They said my bones were bad
So I broke them

They said my heart was cold
So I burned it



Finally… They don't say anything more, maybe because I finally pleased them! Or is it because there's nothing left of me?
I dunno...

Made in my head during dinner... I added a few things I missed before...

These words are my own! The 'poem' © me.

When I was submitting something I saw this in the example part and had to read the entire thing.
This is beautifully written! But how does food and this awesome piece fit together?

Do you maybe think that there should be a filter on this. There are young viewers out there that should probably not read this?
By the way, will you be uploading another chapter of Pure Heart? (I am hoping soon)

Well... It's just a bit err... Graphic and violent. It wouldn't need an +18 filter, just maybe not for little kids. (I am a teenager afterall)

I can relate to this. People that keep finding things 'wrong' with you aren't worth the air they breathe

I really like it and trust me,lately I don't like many things...So this must be very good :D
It's very sad the way people's brain function.For example,I always have a need to keep people around me satisfied...
And YOU shouldn't please them all,it never works...Please yourself instead ;)
Good work..
I needed to say it one more time...

I don't know who you are, but you are beautiful and amazing. Please, don't bother to please everyone. I've tried, and it never works. The only thing you can do is please yourself with who you are and your actions.
Have an amazing day.
