Emily Weaver - A Portrait This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Is she beautiful?
Chewed nails down to the skin. Chippedtoenail polish.
Short hair sticking out over herears.
Flannel shirts and tomato-stainedjeans,
     with hiking boots andthick wool socks.
A plain, uncovered face.
An admirer ofart and music, but not of fashion.
Unfeminine in mostaspects - except one
     She's awoman
                  - true beauty
- her own person
Challenging the world,taking on her fears.
Ignoringinsecurities.
Strong
         Independent
        Aware
              Innocent
     REAL
The sheeropposite of superficiality.
Present for herself and noother.
A woman ... and beautiful.
