the grisly misfortune of the way the world works



I wish I wasn't this ugly
that superficial didn't matter
and it was substance
which was cherished
not hair colour
body shape
or sexual promiscuity

That my ugly
wasn't the first thing seen
and I was listened to
with the same intensity
as anyone pretty

I wish I wasn't so ugly
and immediately ignored
that I didn't think of
the darkness like I do
letting it get to me
realizing the way the world is
versus how I perceive it
that ugly never overcomes
always having less opportunity
at life in general

Even this
small microcosm

begets that theory
correct.

That ugly
is an albatross

weighing
all it's
mighty pressure
pressing
down
hard upon...


... and


Oh my,
aren't you just
a handsome devil?
