Favorite Quote:
“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
~Audrey Hepburn


Solid white body
Lanky arms—white
Whiter than white face
White eyes
White hair
Bleached white lips
White tongue
White feet
Plain white
That is all
All over
Up and down
Never any color, and too much white to cover
I need help to become
That butterfly
Emerge from the blank
And become the colorful person
I know I used to be
Colorful, except that was after you and
Before you were damaged
After me
I know who I need to be
And that is not who I am emerging as
I hope soon you will just see
See the color on the inside of me

It is easy to blend in, except not when you are so blended you stand out.
