A Fear

I fear Ugliness

The kind that takes over your soul 
And doesn't let you sleep anymore

Eyes wide open, concentrating
waiting for something to happen

If patience is a virtue
Why am I not at peace

I raise my hands up to the Lord
So he can set me free

    You have to see the beauty within and it will come shining through, know that you are beautiful.
