My hair isn't pretty
It's dry and dull and frizzy
My eyes are a boring shade of brown
Not like a shimmering ocean where one could drown
My mouth rarely shows anyone a smile
Maybe it's because I haven't seen happiness in awhile
My skin doesn't reveal the true color of my soul
And how for years, my ancestors were under another's control
My personality is a little prickly to say
Caustic and biting to drive all away
While I really don't want to keep you at bay
I'm rude and scrawny and stoic and mean
Not lovely and bubbly and smiley and peachy keen
Do YOU find me beautiful?
Despite all my flaws, am I the genuine article?
You could give me a hint, instead
Of just sitting in silence as you invade my head,
My thoughts, my fears, my dreads.
Because now, you are the highlight of my day
Your kindness, your smile, everything you say
I really wish you knew
How amazing and chivalrous and cool as the dew
I see you.
But I can't say this out loud
Because we're always in a crow
