i know that everyone in my section today struggled to write this poem. it took me a long time to figure out how i wanted to frame it. for my feedback, it was funny, and i knew it was going to happen, but there were comments of how i don't do really well on the self affirmation part until the 3rd to last line which ties the poem. people wrote as feedback that they think that i was writing knowing that i am loved, but if you've been following, you probably know that i don't really love myself. this piece is telling of how i can't really affirm myself.
my friend in the class was telling me how it would be so much easier to write a piece pointing out all our flaws. it's true
it's sad. it's also telling of our society and how we tend to focus on our weaknesses rather than strengths.
