Beautiful Home

They are like foreigners to the land in which they were born.
Beauty is a word they don’t know, “happy” means “small” in their tongue.
They search for a home they’ll never find, for they search only outside.

Author’s note: I wrote this poem around the theme of low self-esteem and a negative body image. I know how it feels not to feel at home in your own body, and I wanted to express that in writing.
