SugarKiss Twist - Poems

The Persistence … of Self

Good morning
Do you like what you see

Not really

Well … You look beautiful to me

That’s easy for you to say
You don’t face the world like me – Everyday

Discriminating eyes
Staring
But I already know what they’re thinking
When they look at me with disdain
Unable – to feel my pain

There is no pain for you to feel
I'm enraptured by your appeal

That’s easy for you to say
You don’t carry the weight of the world. Aching – Everyday

Expecting eyes
Taking
I’m barely holding it together
Why don’t they see
I cannot be what everyone needs from me

Then just be ... Okay

No! I’d rather be someone else
Can I – reinvent myself

Well sure …  and whoever you decide to be
You will always be beautiful to me

The Persistence … of Self
