Personal (Hope)

I am a monster;
I scare everyone away
with my grotesque appearance.

I have trouble
even looking at myself
in the mirror sometimes.

Such ghastly features
are reflected;
no wonder everyone leaves me.

But I know under my skin,
this facade of ugliness,
I have a good heart.

And one day, everyone
will see that and not
the monster they made me into.

I love it! I don't know if

I love it!

I don't know if you feel this about yourself or if your muse and self got together to make this, but either way it is beautiful and I connect to it in some twisted way.


If your mirror doesn't find you one of the most beautiful people it has ever seen, punch it and find a better mirror.
