She Is Beautiful

She is a mess of contradictions
"Opposites attract" written into her soul

When she speaks and her words come out skewed
She bites her tongue as if taming that rogue machine would stop the embarrassment
Then she usually laughs, because she's learned that it doesn't pay to stay serious

On occasion, she forgets and throws too many thoughts into a poem
But she to runs to her Father and is renewed

Her heart is not weak, but it can be fragile
She refuses to give up on those she loves
And she knows how to hold someone's hurting hand

It's not always easy, the way she tries so hard
Sometimes she begins to bend over backwards - in pain
But she's learning to walk with her head held high

She has music woven around the corner of her eye
Precious and imperfect

It's okay that she doesn't make sense
Messy and indescribable

Her smile will always continue to light the world
Beautiful and beautiful
This piece means embracing yourself and believing you are worthy of the love that you so freely give others.

    I literally could not care less if this fits any prompt- it's beautiful. "Her heart was not weak, but it could be fragile"? "She has music woven around the corner of her eye"? Dude that stuff's genius!

    hi, i'm sorry but i can't accept this piece for the contest bc it doesn't meet the prompt requirements (at least 500 words). this limit was set in place to really get the essence of jumping from one stream of thought to another, and i feel that this piece didn't capture that feeling very well, given its low word count. if you want, you can submit else and i'll totally check that out!
