Dear Acne...

Dear Acne...

1 min 317 1 min 317

Dear acne,

You're so vile

And I despise you the most.

You pop up when I least expect you;

Catching me off guard

And making me stress about you.


You never really leave people alone

But you slowly steal our spirits,

Make us lose our confidence,

Punishing us with a hopeless life.


Dermatologists give you gels

And creams and lotions

They give you topical stuff

But don't tell that it shatters you from within.


People tell you to cut all sugar from your diet

And eat all veggies.

I raid my kitchen in hopes

To find a remedy to make you go away.


And when you finally decide to leave,

You leave behind a dark mark;

A scar to remind us all

That you've owned that spot.


You disappear but we live in fear

About you coming back to haunt us.

Dear acne,

I despise you the most.
