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.

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

Unchanged

His smile

His eyes

The way he looks

The way he walks

Chuckles and talks

All the same.

His lies

His deceit

The hopelessness

The heartaches

They are all the same too.

Somethings never change

But not me, not anymore.

Beauty in Death

A flower about to wilt is just as beautiful as the one blossoming.

People don’t acknowledge it, but there is beauty in death too.

It’ll Change

To say that I gave up on love would be absurd

Because giving up for me was never a word

But he was the reason

The last straw of the season

Maybe someday it’ll change

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

For A Change

To cut a hair that’s all the long

A change of view wouldn’t be so wrong

To sing a song from old

Sounds kind of new and gold

A make up and maybe none or just less

Could be grand or a huge mess

Change things up for a change

Too Many

Too many changes

Too many chances 

Too many things going on at the same time

Too many for my head to take

And so I stare at the wall

She needed to change
She could feel it
It was a necessity
So she let it

Her brown hair, was slowly becoming black
Her eyes, more brown than anyone could ever dream of
Deep inside she’s the same
Outside, different

And so her chestnut is no more
Her transformation, complete
She is now known as the girl with jet black hair

I changed my view
I changed my thoughts
Physically, I changed too
Hair that once was brown
Turned darker like the night
Deep as the shadows
And now, darker still

simple Ula

I want to be rich. Rich in love, rich in health, rich in laughter, rich in adventure and rich in knowledge. You?
