I Am Lovely

I am lovely!
The sound of my voice makes angels sing
I am beautiful and wonderful
My thoughts bubble from the ground like a spring

The promise of my presence
Fills the world with jealous peasants
Adolescents wanting to copy my essence
Their parents asking me for lessons
As they make their penance for lacking acceptance
My luminescence eclipsing their presence
Everyoneís just fighting for heaven or antidepressants

I am Lovely!
or at least thatís what Iíve been told
people always tell me
You are Beautiful!
I smile and say thank you,
walk away feeling cold.
