I wish someone told me…


This poem is a winning entry for the first online e-magazine Expressions unlimited.


I wish someone still told me
I was still beautiful
Source:int-history.blogspot.com
Those artistic eyes , Those soft lips,
Those  rosy cheeks , Those arched brow
Now tell a tale of sorrow
Those pretty smiles , Have gone away miles
They no longer adorn my face, they no longer add to the grace.
I wish someone still told me
I was still beautiful

Worried to walk out alone, All I can remember is my moan and groans
Covered in a veil, my face all weak and pale
Thousand faces my eyes meet, but no one bothers to greet.
My face scares them off, all they do is taunt and scoff.
Do I deserve a life like this....
I wish someone still told me this
That ,“I was still beautiful”

Wherever I go no respite for my woe
Same people and the same questions I find
The world around me is blind and unkind
They can no longer see
What it feels to  be me.
I wish someone had the eyes to see
The beauty behind the scars in me
I wish someone still told me this
“I was still beautiful”
