    SIDES OF BEAUTY .

    Threatened by my beauty

    The mere fact that my face is porportioned equally , 
    high cheek bones  , wide smile , and big beautiful eyes.
    means to you that i am exempt from ridicule cries .

    Your feeding your own hatred of self ...
    by stepping on my esteem.
    each road of drepression,
    leads to your accussing aggression ..
     
    Never feeling secure with the love your mate showed you ,
    second guessing my intensions for more than a few.
    chastising my innocense from a place of pain,
    when i opened my heart and bared it plain . 

    You have taken on the tidious job of crushing my reputation 
    clearly , you lost no sleep , and judged without hesitation.
    the time you wasted pointing out my flaws , 
    could have been used to break down your own flawed walls .

    Does my beauty offend you ?
    intimidated by my outer true.
    give me a few seconds 
    i'll find your inner beauty too .

    My very presence upsets you , 
    throws you off your game too.
    Can't be yourself , figure you'd never measure up,
    continued to steal from my precious cup.

    Don't you remember how it feels to be young,
    like you could save anyone, become unsung.
    would you rather i miss my mark , 
    never reaching my full potential spark.

    see from my eyes windows , i see myself different ,
    trying to becareful of what i say , when i vent.
    hoping you don't peek in to see the damage,
    Makes me feel angry, alone on a dark stage.

    Deep inside your a person just like me ,
    complete with beautiful flaws for all to see.
    take the leap to discover who i am 
    show me who you are without the spam...

    Your loins made you think i was shallow,
    when really it was your will power that was hallow.
    was it worth the price you will pay,
    for the malicious words your mouth say.

    This I understand completely due to the fact my daughter was put through this in high school. The girls were very much insucure about their boyfriends eyeing the beauty of my girl are were really scheming to hurt her.

    Nice!! Dress them down for using their insecurities to tear down and malign instead of build up. The words you speak will lead you through paths that can shed light or dark. We have the ability to choose. We can rise above those who hate it when the light of others glow. Great write..............E

    I don't know how I skipped over this comment , but It means alot the comments you leave .. Your reflection is one of wisdom, strength , love , and understanding ..

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
