“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”
Behind her dark brown eyes
are unshed tears she dare not cry.
people fail to realize,
that she is ALSO victimized.
Not enough $$ in the world could buy
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
but what if beauty doesn’t seem to hold her?
Look into her eyes. Windows to the soul.
what will you see? An abyss. A black hole
What is it that controls
This life as a whole?
Do the eyes define.
Good? bad? Fine line?
Do emotions combine?
Give her a sign.
When will things align?
Do her brown orbs see love at 1st sight.
Will the lovers intertwine like tails of a kite.
In the night.
Yea they just might,
Be tight for life.
Raindrops of the eyes fall only for things dear.
Like a waterfall, they descend, every single tear.
Too many. Can’t see clear.
Each one exposing her fears.
Look into her crystal balls. Dig deep 2 feel what she feels.
Analyze the stinging pain. Finally you know that it’s real.
A look at life and she tries to cry.
But all that comes is a long deep sigh.
She’s on the outside looking in and she has a window seat.
It’s an ok view she can see a lot of scenery.
But I’d trade any day.
Just for a day.
To see ME as YOU see me.
Do you see, DIFFERENTLY?
Let me know. O please O please!!!
Lots of pain. Lots of loneliness. Lots of introversion. No Affirmation. I really think it’s important to tell people how you see them. Good, bad, or indifferent. With tact of course. It can really be a catalyst to growth, self-awareness, and self love. I also think its important to ask for that. And I think this poem did that. Only thing is….no body even really knew that was what I wanted…
But yet and still, the Glow up is real…
“Glow Up (v.) – To go from the bottom to the top to the point of disbelief. An incredible transformation.” – Urban Dictionary
This ugly duckling has definitely turned into a swan baby! Still struggle with some insecurities, but I’m low key poppin’!
Back then they didn’t want me, BUT NOW….
….they REALLY still don’t
Be Encouraged. Yea, some days you may feel like the ugly duckling, but it gets better at some point……eventually…one day….trust me…
