UGLY DUCKLING

I met a girl once
with blemishes all over
her face, a dew eyed colour
her skin as coarse as earth would
allow
I met a girl once
cast away
her heart locked away
her complexion outshining the
darkness
I met a girl once
pushed aside by blames
judgments, noise,
condescension
I met a girl once
trampled by world’s
expectations
fragile, weak

A beautiful mind she possesses
Her heart like that of the angels
in heaven
she embraces herself and
becomes her own
she owns her mind
her thoughts, an aesthetic cascade

She blew my mind with her beauty
when she became that for which she was
created – she is now, no more was, and will be
