I USED TO BE UGLY

I used to be ugly,

Riddled in pain,

In this maim you brought to my stage.

I allowed you detoured,

Conjured,

Sat still and wallowed in the after thoughts.

I pushed the feelings to the deep ends,

Hoped it will surpass,

But like a train on an island,

It was stuck, cyclical like these bruises and scar lines.

I used to be ugly,

Well, I used to be.

Not anymore.

Not after coming face to face with the fairly simple concept of walking away.

Not after realizing it doesn’t take a village to realize you’d be the death of me.

And certainly not when this skin became tougher than a dark four door.

I used to be ugly,

Not anymore.

Not when without your warmth I can live and love.

Not when without a thought I can pick me from this rough.

Not when the love you promised is no longer a bargaining chip after all.

I used to be ugly, yes but pretty please, I feel pretty indeed.

Cheers to our Amazing Tribesman Degraft Isaac. We are proud of You!
