We all carry imperfections and scars.

Some of them are hidden, some of them
are visible.

i look at you.
where you see ugliness
because of your scars...
i see someone who's a survivor.

i look at you.
you want to hide your face.
please, don't turn away...
i see someone who is beautiful.

i look at you.
tears well up in your eyes.
you have cried so much.
i wish i could take some of your pain.

i look at you.
and marvel at your strength.
i couldn't do it.
how much stronger you are than i am!

i look at you.
you think you are a monster?
oh, honey, you're not...
you were went through hell on earth.

i look at you.
you remember the pain.
i thought i'd lose you...
you came close to dying many times.

i look at you.
courage personified!
you fought very hard,
and i see improvement every day.

i look at you.
you're MORE than a body.
i love YOU for YOU.
what more can i say to convince you?

Unfortunately, some people can't see past the scars on their own faces. Fortunately, people like you can. You have helped this person to realize their own self-worth. And that is a true gift.

What a beautiful, heartfelt poem; this poem made TEARS spring up in my eyes! What a beautiful testiment of love that overcomes all obstacles; a very good and important lesson can be learned from this write! This reminds me of two of my characters, Roberto and M'buti, and the love Roberto feels for his wife, even with her scars and all of the pain she has had to endure! Oh, if only more people could see the TRUE beauty of anyone who has survived burns or disfiguring accidents: these people are HUMAN, NOT MONSTERS! BRAVA for one hell of a fine write; thanks for sharing! This one is going into my library; it's most definitely a KEEPER!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :) >tears <

This is a marvelous poem, Karla. Well done! Contrary to advertising, beauty truly is far deeper than 'skin deep.' True beauty resides in one's heart and soul.
