Fairy Tale Inspired Poem: Ugly

Ugly

By

Dorlana Vann

Mask of various natures I have worn.
It’s different than the day I was born.
A senseless mistake was made on my part.
Now I exist in shadows and the dark.

My castle walls hide my grief and despair.
Servants, my companions, also prepare.
I find beauty in all except me.
Oh, life so cruel and as deep as the sea.

Wisdom is not always for those who sought.
Nor can virtue or selflessness bought.
I would give my wealth for bliss and song.
Freedom and affection I truly long.

Please stare at me as if I were classic
See beneath the hideous and ugly facade.
Love me for who I am, not what you see.
Then maybe my beauty will set you free.
