Beauty

Her beauty they saw in her grace

Beauty she thought was in a face

Her beauty they felt with her touch

Beauty she thought could not be rushed

Her beauty they heard of through the vines

Beauty she struggled with all the time

Her beauty they read in her words

Beauty she had danced its chords

Her beauty they knew she could not see

Beauty she no longer wanted to be

Her beauty a struggle to be free

Strength

I see the strength in you that you do not

As you hold in your sobs for fear of others thought

I hurt inside knowing you can’t see it

As I try desperately to make you believe it

How do I show you how strong you can be

When you constantly hide your ears from me

Lessons learned never come easy

But learning them is the gift we need

That strength is in all of us

Enabling us to succeed

By Sheri Hall

 

 

 

Feelings

How does it feel when they cheer and clap

Their applause shaking the floor to collapse

How does it feel to give praise and raise others up

A grateful smile with confidence brought

How does it feel when left alone

Sometimes a respite no one knows

How does it feel when your’ the joke

Never okay, inside you more broke

How does it feel when your’ left to shine

Inside your heart knows your pride

How does it feel when we fail

Hard not to exit but continuance prevails
