~ God's Masterpiece ~
by Dawnmarie Rodriguez
Look at me, straight in my face, can you see me...
see my beauty
my imperfections are my perfection and is a tool
for you to see through
the veils embedded in your head that makes
your mind blindside
Who I am on the inside makes me shine
a beautiful light on the outside
Fighting through the imagery that you were
taught is not beautiful,
an endless deception of the perception of me
not visually accepted
my peers insiatiably berate me, degrade me
their words and laughter penetrates me with pain
but I am beautiful....
can you see me?
Yes I am unique, I have something grand
to offer this world
The image you see before you
to you is imperfection
but to God
I am His masterpiece
I have been given God's grace with hopes that you too
will embrace my face that some
may describe as a disgrace
which affects my spiritual displacement
in this place.
Look at me...
my face tells you I am beautiful
I live in a world that can be so cruel
my look may be unusual but I am beautiful.
Look at me...
my eyes still see you...
but do you see me?
Look at me....
embrace my difference...
I am beautiful...
