ʎʇʇǝɹԀ Ugly

Neem even de tijd om dit bijzondere Engelstalige gedicht ʎʇʇǝɹԀ Ugly van Abdullah Shoaib te lezen. Lees het gedicht eerst van boven naar beneden en dan van beneden naar boven en vraag je dan eens af:
"Hoe denk ik over mezelf?"

I’m very ugly

So don’t try to convince me that

I am a very beautiful person

Because at the end of the day

I hate myself in every single way

And I’m not going to lie to myself by saying

There is beauty inside of me that matters

So rest assured I will remind myself

That I am a worthless, terrible person

And nothing you say will make me believe

I still deserve love

Because no matter what

I am not good enough to be loved

And I am in no position to believe that

Beauty does exist within me

Because whenever I look in the mirror I always think

Am I as ugly as people say?
