Those Days

Lately, when I look at myself

I cannot bring myself to say,

“Wow, I look as if

I am doing quite well!”

And when a small,

Belittling part of me shouts,

“You are one shell of a belle!”

I try not to dwell on it,

And when I shut my eyes

In hopes of breaking the spell,

It does not work very well.
