Lost Beauty

“Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”– – is what I was always taught

Now I’m beginning to doubt that wisdom

Sometimes the image I behold possesses an uncommon beauty

But to the world it’s ugly or simply invisible

Is my beauty or ugliness just a figment of my imagination

What I think I see in the mirror or the lens of a camera is not the same as what others see

Is my beauty or ugliness what I see or what others see

Or, is my beauty lost to an old body that use to be…

My Hope For The New Year

Just like this bird, I hope to soar toward new opportunities and independence!
