Favorite Quote:
"Carpe.... Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary." ---Robin Williams, "Dead Poets Society"


Brittle confidence
Eyes judging
Avert your gaze
Ugly face
Trying to avoid mirrors
Imperfections
Finding Faults
Underneath the make-up
Look away

The author's comments:
This poem is not exactly about what it seems. To some people it may seem to be about how I take beautiful to be an insult... But it's not. I wrote this when someone called me beautiful and I just couldn't see what they were seeing. So beautiful isn't bad, I just couldn't understand how I was beautiful.
