Half Moon

The half moon was shining bright yellow like a golden smile on the night sky.

I smiled inwardly, as the moon often does that to me.

Though not as bright as the moon that’s full,

The half moon still lighted the way for me.

I’ve always been in love with the moon

And it often reminds me that some changes can be beautiful.

Replacement

She swept you away like a tide

Swallowed you whole

You held your breath for her

Because for you,

She was worth it.

.

She was the most stunning rainbow you’ve ever seen

The loveliest rose in the garden.

But you broke her too

Replaced her with someone new

Kind of like how you replaced me…

…with her.

Different Kind of Beauty

I live in a country were pale skin is considered pretty

Which is an irony

Because most people are brown, bronze, dark, or colored

.

They look at me with envy

And say I’m lucky…

Only because I’m pale, that they think me a beauty.

.

Almost everyone here wants snow white skin

While I think “morenos” or “morenas” are beautiful

But I don’t try to change my skin color

Unlike most I see around me

.

If beauty is just skin deep

Then I don’t want to be considered beautiful

I’d rather be seen as pretty because of my dry wit and sarcasm

Because of my intelligence and quirkiness

.

I’ll shed this pale white skin

And be a different kind of beauty

Allow Me

Allow me to be me

Do not wish for me to be someone else

Do not hate me for being unchanging

For wanting just to be me

I change when I am ready

But do not force me

Do not reprimand me

Do not cast me out

Allow me to be just the same girl you knew

You loved
