"Never pretend to be a unicorn by sticking a plunger on your head"















- Martin Espada (famos poet and story teller)


I stare into the deep pools of glass
Disappointed with the reflection
Shadows lurk behind me
But somewhere I cannot see

The past of mock
Like nails on a chalkboard
They corner you
And never let you be free

I am sick of hiding
Who I really am
I will no longer cover myself in makeup
Just for a thin pleasure

I will paint
I will sing
Even though they want me to join the normal
I will defy the ordinary

So today I will smash the mirror
No more will I care
I really don’t care about my looks
But I care for the looks on the inside

So I will cry out to the world
No more
Send a message to all you know
Be yourself and be heard

This is definitely one of my favorites by this author!  I will certainly share it with some young teens; it is such a positive model for others to follow.
