Best Teresa Harr-Pena Poems

+ Fav Poet



Used to cover up the beauty

In which you were made from


Fearful of what you

Cannot see within yourself


Desiring attention

Only from those who are blind


The need to blend in

Rather than stand out

    This poem is short but very bold. I liked it very much and natural beauty and beauty from within are certainly the best forms of beauty there are. Great write. -Kristina
