Why: Poem

Why is it that when someone compliments more than once it's my instinct to say stop?

It's like no-stop one compliment is all I deserve.

Why do I feel that way, why do I only deserve one compliment?

Why do I feel rude and disrespectful when I say thanks?

Sometimes, I feel like people compliment me because they feel bad

"She doesn't get enough compliments, let's give her one"

"Poor girl, let's tell her we like her shoes"

But why am I the poor girl?

Why is my self-worth measured in the number of times someone tells me I'm pretty?

Why do I go home crying when nobody noticed my new shirt?

Why is the only reason I am still alive because she told me she liked my hair?
