To the girl in the corner :

With unmemorable face
and mediocre looks.
No catwalk. A shuffle her pace.
Unlikely to catch,with those plain  hooks.

The mirror deceives.
Glass designed to
crack esteem.
The glorified assembly line
product,
the perception of
perfection,
your adversary.

March away from the
corner
towards that door
where destiny waits
to enter.

After all, the meek shall inherit the earth.

Matthew 5:5 "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth" - Jesus

    Very profound message you deliver here, I agree, the glossy perception of good looks can be a daunting task for any woman, but when she walks out in all her beauty and authenticity, watch out world here she comes, take care my dear and keep writing, it has real depth and beauty, blessings from Rose xxx
