Self Portrait

As I take my palette of words
Wondering which shall I first use
A portrait of my self
I would not wish to abuse

I have a confidence
That has been learnt the hard way
My feet are on the ground
But point forward, the only way.

My heart is large and loving
My temper can be short
But I never hold a grudge
And revenge is never sought.

Green eyes that look with love
At eyes the colour of mine
A nose from my dad
But my legs are rather sublime.

A smile is never far away
I deem that number one
A smile should be for everyday
A smile for everyone.

A model I would never be
There is too much of me
But I have never really wanted
To flaunt me publicly.

With my palette of words
I hope you can now see me
And hang me on your wall
As a dartboard for all to see.

    Mandy, my dear, With legs declared sublime, And with green beautiful eyes, There is not going to be a man, Your portrait will not satisfy! Love it!
