    There is a ragging sea inside of you.
    A lack of confidence in your incoming tides
    While Bitter waters drench and wash over you.
    It seems you always cry salts of pride
    While hiding beauty wells deep inside.
    Sometimes it’s hard to relate, when my feet are normal
    Not bolted, nor held with screws and plate.
    It’s a shame how others stare at your limp
    How brothers can tease, say you walk like a pimp.
    Over time I’ll tell you, I hardly even notice
    Cause to me your not handicap, but a blooming black lotus.
    Its true you’re different in every kind of way
    Cause you aren’t big ***** girl like flashy Beyonce.
    I said that just to make you laugh.
    Cause I rarely see a smile.
    For you they don’t arrive day by day,
    But come more or less mile by mile.
    Ironically its Thursday night and here we are again
    Watching America’s Extreme Makeovers.
    That same girl
    So tiny, fragile, and thin
    That same guy
    Who wants to be G, get rid of his booty cheek chin.
    There it is,
    That question sticking on your tongue like a hard land mine
    I stopped counting now, so this must be the twentieth time.
    You question “What do I need to do to be beautiful?”
    And just like those mines in that dreadful world war
    They only lacerate, burn and scar
    When I answer,
    You already are.
    So here I am again a friend wanting to help
    Yet wavering what to do
    Alas I turn to the Wishmaster, knowing allthe harm he could do
    He grants me three wishes, but I only need one
    I wish for you see.
    For him to take away my sight and give you my eyes.
    So you can finally see your kaleidoscope,
    All your colors and beauty inside.

    That was beyond beautiful, to wish for someone to actually see their own true beauty. This was quite touching poet
