My mind is what some may call dark despite my efforts to brighten the dull cluttered space that I have created inside my brain it remains somber and dark,

Alas; woe to my eyes-- Let them not see. The object of my affection Cares not of me.

Deep and rich,Smooth and clear,A masterpiece painted for the ears,A sweet perfume to the listener.A silvery song,A tenor or base,The loud radio announcer,Or the soft-spoken artist.
Recall the days, not long ago, When you were but a pup, And all the world was marvelous, Nowhere to grow but up. With each new dawn came new delights, To learn, to act, to feel;
An understanding friend
Left and right,The Music flows.Forward and backward,
I see instruments singing, the noise of the universe,
Without Her I would be alone,Without Her I would be lost,
Standing on a hill Feels like I am queen of the world The city lights dance before my innocent eyes The whispers that float to my ears You are beautiful The world is beautiful If only we could see
I AM BEAUTIFUL
Her touch is a push and a pull, It'll have you losing your mind and at the same time heal your soul. A savage she is. She'll claw you like a piece of meat, While the beast in her kisses your lips.
Pain, pain, so easy to feel, so easy to see
Beauty A misunderstood, hopelessly articulated, constantly changing concept The true meaning which has died Buried under social media, magazines, models, makeup Under designer clothes and fancy cars
The descending sun casts brilliant hues of orange and red across the sky
I need to find a place;Where the music will flow,
Once in a blue moon,On a windless night,
Those pretty little faces that you see
The wind pushes against my window as if it’s aching to get inside
Do you see beautiful? Do you... Well... Do you see beautiful in me? Sorry for asking. It's just, Maybe beautiful is A choice, not a birthright.
All Around Beauty Natural and Real Unadulterated By Man's Dull Existence Butterflies Birds Even leaves Hold powerful significance to the Watchful eye

I came here with the seagulls I’m a born city-dweller but the water crashes
Just like the lines on splintered wood,
Life is worth living because of these. Strum of coastal breeze, sugary and smooth, lock of hair that flits away from my face. Rustle of leaves, slight and drifting,
The snow dances down Like prima ballerinas, Floating and flitting. It lands with not one small sound, A lull, then orchestra swells.
As a young woman it seems my body serves threat to my soul. My body making up me; unqiue. Curved and straight and flat and wide and thin and all, is my own.

Your eyes brighten my heart, your smile takes my inner child and caresses me, soothes me, if my eyes rolled back and I melted into the very essence of your soul, I could not be happier to be inside such a wonderful image of beauty, happiness and
Through the glass I look Searching for some answer Faces slanted into an opaque distortion Everywhere I gaze
how could someone so beautiful so gentle and kind, be a murderer? well here's how: she tells herself that she is hideous, that she is nothing. she slowly kills herself,
I'm cold. A chill in the air. Wood fire dwindling to smolders. Ash crisped cinders to share. Cotton between our shoulders. That endearing musk of burnt wood.
I've always been told that I'm not good enough I'm told that I need to change to fit in But I just respond with "Nah, that's not me" I was at my first party and someone handed me a drink

No filter No control. I don't choose to look like I do. With dead eyes. And an empty smile. No filter No control. I did not ask for this. My frame too large for photo encasing.

Beauty cannot be measured, Nor can it possibly be the only thing that matters, But perception is reality, And what the human mind believes instantly morphs into truth, I am a slave to its tyranny,

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what if that view is fallacious?

The Skin I’m in The Skin I’m in doesn’t mean I am covered in sin Or that I am corrupt from within born into a life of violence and rage. That because of my skin tone I am an animal uncaged.
Another long day Pretending to be
When I take a picture I smile and stare at my relfection. My mind wonders if they will like it if they will see me the way I see me.
Your eyes are like the ocean full of secrets someone could get lost by staring to long some people enjoy them yet some people never have yet to experience them
“I’m so proud you’re my sister,” “because you’re so beautiful!” His compliment attacked my stomach,
I love TV and all its perfectness.
I am whoever they say I am It is unfair to let a person judge themselves. It is the world who shapes us without filters. We sit here studying books all on our shelves.

Right now, I am breathing uneasily and imperfectly, similar to how I carry myself. My breath and my own piece of mind. These are the things that follow me around.

A wise man once said, "If we could physically base peoples apperances off of ones personality today, who would we consider beautiful?" I would argue that our perception would stay exactly the same

The Authentic Me by Hunter E Jones Does the selfie define me? Am I worthy? Am I pretty?
I watched a bluebird on a window sill She sat there placid, calm, and singing. We shared the morning sun out in the chill, We let its rays shine down on our faces; freezing.
Love is the feeling of sensations. To hold a pain in your heart for someone, To capture that pain- Only making it whole when the lover is present. It is the emptiness in the chest,

Let's face it, reality is pretty boring, several hours of brain torturing; grades, test, and jobs only create worrying; what is all this that we spend our time juggling?
When it comes to how people view themselves you all have a blind spot. When you look in the mirror you don't see the same things I do. You see mistakes & flaws. I see perfection & beauty in My making.
The harmless freckles that cover my face, The numerous scars on my cheeks and my waist, The extra skin that exists on my thighs, The obvious bags that surround my tired eyes, The size of my large and annoying ears,

GoPro cameras and Selfie Sticks, our ancestors would be horrified. But it doesn’t matter because fabricated images, and fraudulent stories are glorified. What’s wrong with putting your best self out there?
Once when I was seven, My mother came home with a doll. It had blonde hair. Blue eyes. A narrow frame. She handed it to me and she said, "A princess for my princess."

I am BEAUTIFUL Through glasses and worn shoes that have been forgotten, I stand as a woman who is looked on as beautiful, Through torn clothes and worn hands ,
I am dark eye circles. I am nothing but gross, winter skin tapered onto a bored face. I am yellowed teeth, and thanks to dad, hideous manbrows.
Waking up every morning, I take a look in the mirror in my room. She stares back at me, that girl on the glass. Her eyes have much to say, yet they remain ever so gloom. Is she waiting…hoping for a chance?

If it isn’t my skin, then what shall it be? The two arms and legs that extend directly from me? That enable me to run past the wind, and jump the hurdles in front of me.

i woke up like this, sun in my eyes sqinting towards the day ahead. beary eyed and a dry mouth with a side of drool a disheveled mess with a good morning sounding like a grunt.
Flawless? I wouldn't think so.
I am Invisible, Determined I wonder when I will be heard I hear a faint whisper I see a hand held out
In my fantasy I can do anythingI dream, I fly, and soar through the skyThat twinkles with the mesmerising stars of the universe
I'm not that perfect valencia skin beauty I'm that beauty that can be a pizza face I'm not that small forehead lucky individual I'm that five forehead cutie Is it okay? Is it okay?
I was born beautiful. Society will tell me different. I have curly hair. Long, tangly, brown, curly locks. I grew to hate my hair. I was 5, already craving to use a hair straightner.
Not good enough? What is “good enough”? Will I be “good enough” when my hair is down to my ass And my eyes are altered to turn blue from thin layers of magnifying glasses
Why does everything have to be based off a tragedy. Is it not advantageous enough to just have a beneficial life anymore.
Each and every day of my life, I search
What is considered attractive? How is beauty measured? Aren't we all special as individuals?
I don't know what I want
When people look at me, they don't see me. There's a girl who's put together on the outside, With makeup and hair done to a tee. But deep beneath the surface, I'm insecure, I'm broken,
Birthmark. Stretchmark. Scar. Round cheeks. Flat cheeks. Fat. Muffin top. Hair on top. Stick. Dark skin. Freckled skin. Pale.
My sneakers are covered in mud, my thighs sore from the wieght, I keep pushing myself, an image flashes through my mind, a model from a magazine, I think of all the ways I could improve,

Beautiful? Maybe Always thinking of the right words to say It would have been clearer if I said it my way Every move is in need of some thought Always unsure if they get it or not…
I trace the outline of love with your hand: A feeling that can come in many forms; Someone strong as rock simply turned to sand, A new protection from the passing storms;
I look to the stars above: I see the galaxies, swirling In a brilliant array of light- Now I look at me. I see two eyes Colored with the heavens' imagination. I see freckles,
I try to control myself But the temptations are hard My thoughts are to strong My mind is long gone I try to control myself But not when everyones there My eyes see all wrong
Nature is a mystery, but I am unique. The world spins around in an orbit, but my head spins through imagination of wild stories. Out of boredom, the weather becomes a hectic storm,
Beauty a subject spoken and thought by many, understood by only a few. Society has distorded our perspective on beauty by promoting make-up and surgery, they want to change everything that makes you, you.

Would a filter be typing? Would a filter mean no erasing? Does that mean I can't correct my grammar? I'm going to give you the realest me there is, no bullsh*t. Well, to begin, my appearance.
I am more than the 4C type It does not get me where I’m going in life The kinkiness does not exemplify what I am capable of Just how I present myself out of love
You know perfection Is a man-made word Because it is shallow. Though its implications are potent, No poetry projects from its reflection –
I never really understood why Instagrammers hashtag #NoFilter As if it were some kind of excuse To say “Hey! If you think I’m ugly, it’s because I have #Nofilter.” I find it rather unnecessary to

Months of endless preperation Perfecting the smallest of things Weeks of no sleep Putting your heart into it all Putting your soul inot it all All for a crown and title They said

You can't tell me that everyones not beautiful. You can't tell that your imperfection don't make you beautiful. you can't tell me that a beauty, a gap, or wide eyes aren't beautiful.
Remember when girls went through that "selfie" phase? It was like for every picture of their face that they posted The hashtag was "no filter" Followed by a billion heart emojis and smiley faces
We are skin We sweat, we breathe We sing, we dance We laugh, we love But we are skin Painted Exposed Vibrant And soft We are judged Not by the likeness of heart

Although our faces may stand behind a electronic shield, Hidden from reality, We can still detect the truth if we were to peel, Peel the colors from your pictures and disocver the unreality
A smile speaks for itself. It can make people melt. But can you see what’s going on inside? Can you see their true self? A smile holds a thousand words. A smile can hide away what they truly feel.
Get up in the morning Straighten your hair Put on lipstick You can’t shop there Your “suggestions” are the foundation of insecurity My mind corrupted by the way you think of me
When I look in a mirror, I don't see that girl in the movies, the beauty all the guys are after, or even the nerd, hiding a banging body and gorgeous eyes behind wire-rimmed glasses,
Ode to Darkness You have existed since the beginning of time and for too many years and to too many minds have been misunderstood
Clean? Clean, clean, clean... clean... one more time... just one more... twice more... thirce more... I swear I'll stop... soap, water scrub, scrub, scrub hot, scaulding

What is beauty? Do you know? Is it the brand that you rock or the girls you see in the music videos? Society has confused the real meaning of beauty.
I woke up like this.. cracked, saddended. Each I day I find things That make me wonder What is "beautiful"? Is it the clear skin, The perfect body? The short answer is no.
Pick yourself apart. You won't look at yourself as a whole. You will detect every flaw. You refuse to embrace every stunning compliment. You desire to
“ You don’t need a filter.”
From day to day we fight to see the beauty behind thee, these cuts we cover dust to find the strength within the idea of we, anger leads to failure to go where we strive to be, denial of hope in the beauty we do not see,
why cant i be enough, turned asied like a stray i cry why arent i enough. he stands over me tall with hes head held high no hesitation just pride.
Then the wind blows harder sending drifts of snow across the cracked parking lot The stinging air slowly turns my face red as I trudge towards my destination
Blissful years gently sway by I’m just dancing through life average life for average girl but one blistering winter night
Full of Flaws Practice. Every single day is devoted to rehearsal and practice. Keep your chin up and smile wide, don't let it fall.
See I have no filter, because I declare to be remembered,
Myself: who am I? Should that be a question or an affirmation? Who I am... is wonderful. I cannot be anyone but myself. It is funny to wake up every morning being the same person...

She's pretty. No matter how she styles her hair, No matter what clothes she wears, As long as she smiles. So am I.
Her Salted Kiss Scars, scrapes, bruises. inevitable remarks that tell a story her salted ocean breeze whispers in my ear
It lurks within the waters, to bring him back, been away, but can't turn around.
She was beauty her curves were delicious the way her clothes stuck to her skin whispering to them She walked with a dropped head she didn't know every step she took She left the room breathless
She's a different type of girl, under all that founation, eyeliner and blush, you may think she's an open book but oh how she keeps things at a hush!
I wake up and I know me

Each morning my face looks at me, Some days with sleep still in its eyes. And, though I like the face I see, It's time to put on my disguise. The brown eyelashes become black;
I am a beautiful woman But my mind body and soul Is confined by the powers of this intertwined worlds Of what we call social media. The filters of normal, Kentucky, slumber, and rise

Looking towards the future Reflecting on the past Seeing the person in the mirror with new eyes Worthless and hopelessness has left the frontal lobe Walking down the enlightened path Awaken from the dead
I look in a mirror and see nothing I take a picture and see a plan face Only when adding a filter will I feel like something When I add filter I hide the dark tint on my skin Making it my very own filter

My photos without filter shows the beauty of a person and how it doesn't need to have additional accessories.
I stand tall with my head held high; Shoulders back and ready for the ride; Watching eagles spread their wings; Listening to the Angels sing. I see myself in my mind’s eye;
The truth is hard to swallow; resting on the tip of my tongue. It aches to be accepted and it longs to be loved. The truth is hard to find and hard to see for what it is;

My hair my nails my tan? All rockin'! But how might you ask is my body not shockin'?

If she told you she was flawless, she would be lying through her slightly crooked teeth.
You flawed up, they’d say You a mess up, they shout Hair a mess, tears were more, they were cruel They couldn’t care less how I was hurting to the core, they were cruel.
The screen fades to baby blue, My heart expands to a beach ball. I did this. Me.
My beauty is flawless It doesn't cost more nor cost less My beauty doesn't come from the magazines of Ebony and Essence My beauty comes from how I grace others with my presence.
These infernal steaming pools, housed in rust encumbered riveted domes, Constructed by prison masons posing as scribes, Spout their plumes of water rising to eclipse skylights, fogging up the warped cracking glass,
Beauty is in the Eyes of Society Growing up, I was never skinny; my skin was dark and all I wanted was to be pretty. I was 10; looking at magazines, seeing all of the skinny girls
When I was younger, I used to think that I was overweight Because my parents would say "You should lose that tummy of yours." I'm sure they meant well. My biggest influence didn't come
Is it natural? Yup You're telling me there's no weave or extensions? Yup Well then you must be part white or something? Nope Seriously, you're fully African American? Yup But,you have a perm then? Nope
Who am I? You should know who I am. Standing tall, with my head up above. Looking beyond the present in hopes to build a future so strong no one could even grasp the concept of going backwards.
I'm not sure how to wear self confidence
The blood seeps in Through the cracks on the walls And it penetrates Into my spirit Evolving my state Into a more impeccable union Listlessly it closes in On the lion
On which hour on thy social media, thee wilt findeth a miniature of oneself, But what lie beneath the mask, the true visage? If thy mask be uncovered, what wilt thou findeth in thyself?
The earth fed us through our feet as we stood in the grass. The rain quenched our thirst as it dripped into our trembling hands. We indulged in luscious conversation
Eyeliner, lipstick, foundation everywhere, Nowadays it’s a necessity because I want to compare. My bare skin, my naked face, Just doesn’t seem perfect unless a filter is in place.
Break the lense
Truth be told Sometimes I have no idea
I'm perfectly and wonderfully made
Why am I kickass? My grades are quite high, for me the girls would die, I've got luscious brown hair, when you're older you'll care, I jump high for my heighth also, I'm white.
i am beautiful. not because of the products in my hair or the make-up on my face, not even because of the clothing on my body. i am beautiful because of the words i speak and the love i give.
Today, I woke up and I saw myself. Not the person I usually see Not the girl that has to be dressed up with hair freshly done to be beautiful. I saw myself.
You sit there with a blank stare on your face. You smile but you want to cry. You talk but you want to be quiet. You pretend to be happy but you arent. Youre broken. You cant get away from it all its as if a current is pushing you under water.
Searching here and there, striving to find bliss... Went to friends and colleagues, they said get rich; enjoy luxury, pleasure is the mean of bliss... Not really!!
I look for beauty, love for beauty... But don't really know what is beauty... People say what appears in face and body... Good looking that pulls towards you is beauty... Is this beauty?
You are Perfect being you Be crazy, be happy, be full of imagination Dont hide behind filters, show the real you Embrace those moles, those scars, let your flaws run free
They see my faults; I see only beauty.
I have had braces for 5 long years.
I put on my make-up and pick out my shoes; the perfect pair to match my shirt. Because that was what I was taught to do In a World where looks are what seem to work. They say my hair is much too short
The world is a mistress of beautiful things But the harsh reality is It also holds ugly things And we have ugly people posing as beautiful people And they press the buttons Leaving the rest of us in poverty
I am Photogenic, yes capital P
As I sit there and wonder a world beyond all of us my mind begins to see images, and I close my eyes. As I step into the shower and feel the warm rushing water against my imperfect skin
No filter and no makeup, I feel naked It's hard to admit, I'd rather fake it, Pretend like I'm okay, With the small acne scars on my face, The way all my hairs don’t naturally fall into place,
Who am I beyond the mask?Behind the facade is a woman.Why I am no different than you.
Never did I think the world would see me Behind the flowing stems of roses
The wind is talking The change is coming The clouds are dancing And the sky is smiling The sun is bright It’s shining down on us It’s lighting the way For us to walk straight
Butterfly change Let your beautiful colors be seen Let your wings go free It’s time to come out To share your beauty To bring some joy To spark some fun It’s time to fly high in the sky
The controlling controller roams in her controlling world, thinkinking highly of the crazy cool adventurous odesseys she embarks on. Her blanket is her cape to escape
I think I am beautiful, In a different sort of way. I always keep them laughing, And they just want me to stay. My face is something of my own, One alike you'll never see.
Every morning there is a bucket of bricks on my back. It slowly reaches to the top as the skinny and the fabulous come in from their room of perfection.
I pieced together the clouds in the sky and they were so perfect God asked me to paint the night So many stars, I broke the sky I broke the sky
I am fierce
I have many names.Some call me Aphrodite or Venus,But you know me as Beauty. Don’t listen to what others say.I am not vain,Only aware I am what God wanted in Eden.Am I wrong for enjoying what I was handed?
The beauty within yourself is based on conciousnes Most people seem to always brag about what they have, Others just tend to whine about what they don't, I'm more in the midle.
The beauty within yourself is based on conciousnes Most people seem to always brag about what they have, Others just tend to whine about what they don't, I'm more in the midle.
What is behind it? The void The abyss The unknown Behind it is whatever it pleased to be
My thighs stretch out across the seat when I sit.
Who am I?Friend or foe?
what makes me flawless?
I am strong
I'm Flawless Not because my skin is clear or my body is perfect Cause I'm Far from both .. But because I love.. I love hard .. I'm flawless cause my loyalty runs deep
I used to think that because my legs weren’t Twig thin That I was ugly That no boy would ever find me Beautiful enough to touch That no girl would ever think I was prettier than she was
I am the girl that wears a lot of make up, which hides who I really am. Eye shadow, eye liner and foundation, I wear it all. The make up disguises who I really am;
If sin and Beauty became as one, What astounding creation would be done? Would it not befuddle the mind, A thing of beauty and transgression designed? A flawless child meets the eye,
Who am I? That is the question... I walk around, in a ghost town, in a world were I feel unheard, "Nobody is perfect" is what I hear, yet we all strive for perfectiion.
They are what make us unique, What makes us learn from our mistakes. Everyone has them, so how can you say who has the better mutation? These tiny imperfections are what differentiate us from one another.
My dad said once That flaws are what make a woman beautiful It took me eighteen years to believe it
Someone like me Someone like me Someone like me gets up everyday and does something new Whenever if it's going to school Or facing something new at home Everyday is a new day for me
I wish You all could see The small girl behind the facade. Behind the facade That does nothing but show off And try to prove to everyone that she is a woman. When really
The beauty of love, Is that it cannot be sought, It cannot be tracked, It can only be found, Sometimes in the most unlikely of places
I am who i am, idenpendent and strong minded. In today's society beauty and perfection is all that matters. If im not skinny enough, pretty enough or perfect enough then that means i'm not good enough.
I may not be my mother, tall, strong and bold but who I am is who I am and that is all you need to know
The glow and look in your eye. A shock of excitement from your smile. Spread of warmth from those delicate hands Maybe even a stride in your walk
What is beauty? Everyone has different opinions about beauty. But what is beauty? Beauty can be big, Beauty can be little. Beauty can be light, Beauty can be dark.
The world is full of hate drenched in the cynical behavior that we come to know women are starving to achieve the level or perfecton that photo editors create children are bullied
What do I see?
There's been something weighing on my mind; you see, girls are supposed to be these pretty little things, with ditsy little brains, but what has society's image done to our self-image?
You say that you need all that makeup to look "pretty". Well, I know how you feel because I fall into that trap, too, but don't let that CoverGirl cover up the real you. Because you are unique. Whether you're LOUD or quiet,
As pretty as a white rose
A fake smile she pulls, The weight she bears rips her soul apart, The words, the rejection, the hurt, She sits alone, In the dark, Crying for someone to turn on the light, She tries to please them,
Birth of Dawn look down, breath's thick in your mouth, drifting out like dragonsmoke. the grass beneith your feet, damp with the crisp kiss of false dawn.
I'm not perfect no one is but our flaws makes us who we are flwaless is perfection in the works
She's stepped between worlds, conquered her fears Left home behind, dried all her tears Full of beauty, and grace She's brazen in her chase Her road's just beginning

I am beautiful, inside and out. From my waist to my hips to my thighs, I am satisfied. A full-figured bombshell that oozes confidence in every stride. I challenge you to say I am anything but beautiful.
When I blink it blinks using the Same eyes to see that I can't I live up to a better reflection of me. 2 years apart but miles away while she received praise I received Bullies and Pain.
Who knows what goes on behind closed doors? A little gilr doing her chores. But she is a sad girl., but only she knows. She stares in the mirror with guise and hate. Wondering who would ever take her on a date.
I hide behind a mask of insecurity, a mask made of makeup. When I put on my foundation, I conceal the batte scars. The ones that come in the form of dark circles underneath my eyes.
Im not a pefect girl; Never have been, never will be. With this statement,
Broke a vase and crashed a car, Told my Daddy I wasn't going far. I choked on stage Tripped and fell I am definitly not hollywood, Oh damn well. Got a drink dumped on my face
To think such beauty could emerge from the dirt To think she could withstand being tread upon To endure the mental and physical hurt No, this is not the treatment she chose To be treated like a weed
#Hi. I'm trying to act like I'm invisible because I know that you can see that I'm not #perfect. But I know that if you could see the real me that is not my blotchy skin or curvy frame, you would be #shocked.
I once knew a girl in Junior high , With pretty eyes but kind of shy, her voice was sweet and smooth like butter, But when people saw her they thought nothing of her; She had one friend who she met in elementary,
Thoughts of humanity stir ins
You can't tell by my physical appearance, but I have a chronic disease.
This is my peom about how I feel, I never realized how hard itd be to peel, back all the visual standards to better reveal. My inner desires, thoughts turning my wheel. Well here I am, and this is what I'll say,
Look at me What do you see? Young, black, short, mean Somewhere in between? I look in the mirror You know what I see? A queen Staring back at me Not the tallest
When I wake up with it, It kisses me good morning.
I am me You are you We are different in more ways than seem true You are not perfect, and neither am I, You are thin, and I am wide. But while all of this is true,
They told me that every scar on my body Was just another moment that I survived. That every stretched valley was a sign of The struggles I've overcome. I didn't believe them until now.

As she gets dressed she looks in the mirror
I don't wear makeup
I'm not the best of sons, and it's hard to miss my family when everyday they're part of war. I live with scars that just won't seem to end, but you know what? They're my medals and best friend.
Nobody is ever PERFECT, we all make MISTAKES I’ve CHEATED on my boyfriend, I’ve LIED to my mother I’ve TRIPPED on my own foot, I’ve COVERED my face in make-up I’ve CURSED to fit in, I’ve CUT my own skin
I am young, I am Naïve, and I am gullible. I am old, I am jaded, and I am a realist. My traits contradict each other at every turn I take. My hair is ratty, with multiple dead ends.

There is beauty in the folds of my skin and the crease in my brow Underneath my matt of hair and freckles There is power behind my quiet voice and my timid thoughts Seeing past my unsureness and doubt

I cannot even decipher my thoughts into a proper poetic form Look there! I misused proper syntax and lacked common punctuation Ugh, this writing is already a disaster! Utterly imperfect, utterly ruined. And yet-

The swallowed voice, that wallows from the pit of my soul, Speaks in the desolate ancient tongue of Sultans,
Depression, comparisons Oh no you're wrappped in Who is that girl Who sends you in a whirl She has the dainty features While you stand in the mirror looking like a creature Thoughts race, you cry
Flawless. Why, because I woke up like this.
Flawless is not true Lawless is the virtue I seek Awless is what these spreads on PAPER magazine make the men do Less is what makes the woman's world bleak with the deadly streaks of no mystique
i write and i write but how can i describe the feelings that i have yet to experience with words i can't even begin to know the meaning of?
My personality never lacking originality formed intricately by the different motives of my ancestry creating me to be, who I be no matter where I go, it always comes along with me I love it

I search for a shadow to be my safe haven I’m condemned to be a lawyer, a doctor, or maybe an engineer, Filled with the hopes and dreams of my parents, I spill blood over the paper because words are my safe haven,
As a child expectations make us. Growing up we feel them break us. the expectation to suceed. The expectation preasure is to much. The preasure is felt harder and harder. Expectations build our struggle. When we struggle we learn.
The Girl In the Corner, Yes the one all alone, The one who is in the pouring rain, She has had a troubed past, Cuts that are like sleaves going up and up her arm, Her parents both gone,
Beauty holds no true shape or matter. It is not tangible. One cannot measure it. It cannot be tasted. Who can define beauty? Beauty can only be created one can choose how to define beauty.
I am not just your Facebook Friend, Not a profile picture, Not another one of your precious likes, Not a tag in a post, Or a name in your chat box, I am a living, breathing person,
Rhyen Williams ***FLAWLESS Poetry Slam November 17, 2014
One day I woke up Thinking I had had enough This world this life was filling me up with lies that told me I could never be enough But when I looked into the mirror thought about how those words made me feel

In this worldWe all competeDo you look good?Did you run a mile?Sometimes we forgetTo look beneath
Who wins you might ask? Well of course, it's up to you. Wether you keep the mask Or be true to you Life is a game No one wants to play And the only two things that can be quite left
No one can take away persons body or mind I beleive my mind can create the world i want And my body can produce the people in it

Once a friend said: "Your eyes are always smiling" That was one of the nicest compliments anyone has given me. My eyes are not anything to "ooh" or "aah" about,
The corset is now off, Putting all the guard down. What if they should flout or scoff? Sea of shame, go ahead, drown. Fabricating to care, Pitching bad self esteem. Yet they gossip and stare,
I am the giggle after a dirty joke,
I lived on people's shooulders during parades or tours or anything really important to see. I was always (and still am) in the front row for pictures.
I wake up and look in the mirror To red marks and scars on my face and body I cover them with makeup and whatever I can find But what I don't have to cover up is what makes me FLAWLESS
Why does the wind blow on the other side? Feeling as if I'm trapped in my own of forgetfullness
I woke up like this
I look at your glowing face in the sky And wonder if you feel what I feel. To be ugly and surrounded by unbelievable beauty. How is it like, up in the sky, Surrounded by a sea of stars
I chose to be in this world of dark and light. I put on a mask for the bee, for a future that is bright This is no natural beauty. It takes work. It is my personal duty
I don't wake up perfect and my teeth aren't white but if there's one thing I'm proud of
I used to let beauty define me…..As I gaze at my reflection, I wonder how my life changed so dramatically fast. I went from being one of the popular kids to one of the “losers”. But the funny thing is, this new label does not bother me.

They say that girls are made of curves - that we are smiles and acceptance, a circle of understanding arms, our feminine charms meant to lure you in: a siren call.

The way I walk , The way I talk , The way I carry myself , My confidence over whelms you. In return emotions stir that you can't help. I don't blame you. What you see is what you want.
I may be insecure at times I may be weak I may be overweight But
What is good luck without there being bad luck? How can we see a rainbow without the cloud-darkened sky? How could the stars shine like diamonds without the blanket of night?
All I see
What does it mean to be flawless? Perfect? Unblemished? Impeccable? How can someone reach such a standard?
Life begins inside the cell A simple structure, without much complication, that one can find anywhere A cell, which can build a monastery

The mirror cracks with broken glass unable to hold the lies that are told everything plastic thought as attractive the soulless has worth we're told to convert what is to live
The day I asked myself am I really this person inside, Am I covering up the truth? Is there anything to hide. Blinded by other people's expectations, focused on unexpect fear.
Being told "Its whats on the inside that matters" never felt so true. Our apperance can be deciving, Looking fresh with eyebrows and nails done Yet inside is full of selfishness, jealousy, and insecurity.
As children we are deceived by society’s definition of beauty. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and is in no way perfect.
Your morning breath blew beautifully A familiar funk stuck on the windowsill I’d steal this stench and drench my windowpanes repetitiously
Catch the sun Catch it before it sets
Everyday i cross the waters
The golden hue of a time forgotten Silver shades of today, Together they meld into the generations of my family. Charcoal shadows give character to the night While white light bathes the day in hope.
I give you this lonely flower Which contains all i can give I'm sorry I didn't have the power To give you a better chance to live But in this world that's dying Hope for a better tomorrow is rare
The world is on fire The cosmos did not mean to be in flames The passion of ballet I dedicate my life to it And when I go on Pointe the blood will rush through my feet as I rise trying to grow older
Bike chain clanks as the wheel crunches dead leaves. Sunlight sparkles. shadows dance, as birds call cuckoo. Strangers smile and wave as they pass by me, as I ride on with the mountains not far from view.

I see women. I see thunder thighs and freckles, muffin tops, rib cages, a birth mark that covers the length of her collar bone
He says you're not pretty, your breasts are too small, and your butt - nonexistent, He says you're borderline ugly, so you believe him, and you can't say you don't because you do,
I feel the chill across my face
Much like a woman is the sky. In the afternoon she is there, attending to her daily routine. She shines bright, yet is taken for granted most days. As evening nears, the night is only just beginning.
Yes I'm black, that doesn't mean I'm vulnerable to attack, I'm just like you, a human, red blood, emotions and a moving figure,
Lure them in with your evanescent gleam. Bind them into your eternal paradise. Throw their hypnotic nothings to the wind. Craft velvet wings from jewels. Your primrose shimmer must never dull.
You told me You told me the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice. But now I realize that not everybody has the same taste. So your eyes partake of my identity and you spit me out of your mouth and exclaim
Beauty is an anomoly. It is a power and a curse. it creates popularity, and it empties out your purse. Beauty isn't trivial, it is a passion and a duty. As the desire to be beautiful.
Beauty. What is it? It is a flower or a tree,
Your Love is

I know this girl named Ana, And it's scary what she does.
One simple day
I didn’t know at first. First sight, first touch, it wasn't tantalizing until last night.
Small movements in the fingertips... A slight raise of the chin... Delicate steps onto the stage... A glittering smile to greet her prince....
Senior year turned cold one day. I fell on the ground and didn't have anything to say I held on my stomach and cried a little or more than that a nurse brought a wheelchair over on which i sat
The apple rots when it very well pleases The seed just does what it’s told It grows and grows, the ground picks up the pieces Of the apple tree’s selfish mold. There’s no free will for the sapling
Deep in the forest where the wolfs bane grows The midnight fairy comes out to dance. Her motions are so graceful and her beauty perennial.
Fair-weather sweetheart Hide behind your porcelain makeup Cozy and cuddling in an oversized sweater Fearing the touch of skin when she wakes up Expecting more I love you buts and you deserve betters
Is it still just a game—? When you’re holding me close underwater And I’m wondering how long you’ll let me wait Before I turn around to see you face to face In the dark, alone and falling
Modesty...What exactly is it?
Fool Beauty is something that can come in many different forms. Beauty is something that is found in everything, In everyone. But this beauty comes in certain places for everyone,
Heart beats extra two beats every time I see her face, She a goddess, Not just being moddest, Mouth drops fifteen inches even when I'm fifteen inches away
When we see a wilted flower We recall the wondrous life that was An aging actress appears on the screen
When I walk with the moonlight, Not underneath but beside it, It whispers to me 'do not lose heart, And then I go out and try it. When I swim with the clouds, Gliding through the fluffy air,
My dearest Katherine The true love of my life Nothing could make me more happy Than if you would be my wife Sweet and innocent like a dove You are so very cute The one I can't help but love
The tree laughs Children play below On a hot summer day so slow The tree is shade And the tree likes offering aid The tree smiles A couple look deeply into each other's souls
There is a new dawn behind each nightfall Where a higher power will start to call
Lost in the mids of this Huge crowd.
Gravity can pull me down all he wants, but that will not stop me from reaching the sky. The stars are mine to own, and the universe is my playground. Earth is a test,
I live in a society of broken dolls, With broken voice boxes, Repeating words they can’t understand, Saying what they can’t mean. Parroting hopes and dreams of no one in particular,
The fallen angel which Has Fallen grace into a new world of tragedy.. Her hair Black as the stormy night Her eyes blue as the ocean's water Her skin pale as the winter snow
Pride does not go hand in hand with disgrace You're a beautiful girl as you are And your words have spread very far But they are not synonymous with your beauty I've heard your hateful effigy
How many times will I be told, “Smile you may look prettier”, or “You know what they say, you are what you eat” All these expectations, these standards I live with day in and day out
What is beauty?Magazines, movies, TV will have you believeIt is a mold:Flawless skin, no blemishes, no poresBodies so thin you get hungry on their behalf
Autumn air gently drapes my object of affection.

It’s tempting, to gaze upon the night sky and see only crisp starlight, juxtaposed with a firm sheet of outer space. But most would know that soon,
There was a girl, graceful and free She looked in the mirror just to see If her hair was not in a big mess To see if she looked rather stressed To make sure her makeup was intact
We met in middle school you see;
I might not be the best But that's up to you Whether you think I'm good or not I don't have a clue Sometimes we are to afraid to speak So we hide behind our curtain Not knowing what beauty we hold
The world is filled with bitches. Women got beauty confused with skin hanging out their britches. Hoes, tricks, and sluts. No longer judged by the expression on one's face but what looks good on their butt.
Enjoy a nice, summer breeze Outside, I feel so free Look up at the endless sky Watch all the things that fly Enjoy the view with someone Embrace the rays of the Sun Can't describe in just one word
Blazing beauty, crimson rose Together forever? Who really knows? My love for you blossoms Your eyes are twinkling stars Your warm, welcoming bosom And to you, I give my heart
You would think someone with a disease would have problems in school such as socializing or generally fitting in. Growing up down south and moving to New York city was a huge change for me.
I'm sick of being known as the girl with the curves, the girl who has to show some skin in order to be heard. All I want is some respect and a little more eye contact. I'm sick of being known
Fingers brush over my skin That is soft but resistant with moisture. Brushes tease my grasp. This is art with brushes that doesn’t need a canvas. I’m not organized, It's chaos.
