I look at your face

and I see courage.

It circles your irises,

colors your lips.

You wear the eyeliner of strength

and the lip balm of bravery.

Words that describe you

make up your visage,

words you should be proud of.

Some shadows of words

like “weird,” like “strange"

may ghost behind your eyes,

But I look at your face

and I see courage.

The author's comments:
Inspired by a piece of art someone at my school made. It was a self portrait with all the lines made of words. They were a little hard to read, but I was able to read the word "courage."
