Simplicity: An Onda Mel

The lady is right. You are beautiful no matter what the media says about ideal beauty.

A Reading Writer

Don’t wait for someone to tell you
you’re beautiful,
you are soulful.
Your heart and soul are fresh and new.

The truth is as clear as white snow.
Simple or not,
make-up, without,
your real and raw beauty will show.

I see their faces — the demons
that haunt the deepest recesses
of my mind, but I look them
in the eye and stare them down
with a growl in my throat,
refusing to let them win.
And I won’t. This wolf
is ready to fight back.
