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

Wonderful In White

They’re all marching

Arm in arm

Everyone smiling

Pearly whites showing

Cameras flashing

He waits, excitedly shivering

Looking like Prince Charming

Or a knight in armor shining

His eyes, they seem like dancing

In the altar I arrive

He smiles as we wait for his bride

And I wonder

Would I look wonderful in white?

Whiteness, Paleness

She was a ghost!

White, no, pale

She was different from most.

Others loved her fair skin

Many coveted hear paleness

But she never liked her color, the same way she hated her chin.

She hated being thought of as pretty just because of her skin color

She wanted to be seen as more

Because she is more than just her skin color.

White Fridays

He loves to wear white on Fridays
Not sure how it started
Somehow now he has planned it

I remembered when we both wore white at the same time
It was unplanned
It just happened
And after that I recalled
Wearing white again, hoping he does the same

Now white has become a favorite of mine
And Fridays too
For the sole reason that he seems to favor them too

Little Black and White Dress

she dances in the night like the first night you saw her

she moved with grace despite,

imperfections

 

she was grand with eyes of deep light brown

a beauty beyond description,

recognition or belief

 

she took the dance floor and made it her own

her style is beyond years, beyond time

beyond Technicolor

beyond the black and white façade

 

she is timeless

elegant with simplicity

you know you’ll never forget this night

and the way she looks on that dress

Gracefully

I want to be wiser when I grow old

The chapters of my life, I will have told

I don’t want to be young forever, what good will that be?

To never mature and learn and be free?

No, that’s not what I want, that’s not what I plan

I’ll do my best to grow old, I know I can

Oh to be old, with wrinkles and gray hair

I couldn’t think of what would look more fair

To be able to reach the age of seventy

That would be a gift of plenty

I want to be like Betty White

Who grows old gracefully, such a shinning light

Chocolate, so yummy so delectable

So wonderful to the taste buds

Bitter dark and wonderful white

How about with raisins and nuts?

Chocolate, I crave to eat

Comfort food or dessert, it really doesn’t matter

It sets off a sensation, so wonderful

I’d like to have some more, please

Chocolate, chocolate, so delicious to eat

Won’t you share some today?

Chocolate, chocolate, won’t you tell me

Are you hungry yet?
