Standing  on  tip toes

Stretching  out  arms

Her mouth opens wide

Sounding  out  with  alarm.
Tears running  down face

Hair tassels and wild

Body shaking, so crazy

Non willing  like a child.
“Can anyone  hear me

Can anyone  help

I can’t  go much  further  

Please hear of my tale.
I’ve  fought this with vigor  

This me, who I am

I don’t  like my reflection  

I am ugly  and  dim.
God  why did you  want me?

I  have nothing  to  give

I try but can’t  change  me  

Please don’t  let  me live”.
A voice from above

Softly  spoke  in her ear

“I don’t  make mistakes  

You  have nothing  to  fear.
I  gave you  your  heart

Without  bragging rights  

I gave you  your eyes

For  clarity  in sight.
I  gave you  a passion  

For others who pain

So you  can reach out

And help others  gain.
Now dry up those tears

And be on your  way

Show kindness  and  love

For today  is  your  day.
