Self-Obsessed

By Suwen Liew

They condemn us
for being self obsessed.
For being in love with ourselves.
For being attracted to our own beauty,
When truly it is just a form of reliability-
In search of an acceptance that is barely there.
a concrete form of it that can be understood.
Beauty is a concept
– doubts when abstract,
In a world where everything seems so ugly.
Being self-obsessed is the only way we’ll know how to be beautiful.
Looking at ourselves like paintings,
painting more until we are happy.
Happy with the way we look.
But of course,
That’s all too good to be true.
