Self-discovery

Behind my tattooed face

Is a face full of love and grace,

Hidden beneath this hard and hateful cover

Is a glowing heart

That welcomes strangers

To those rocky cliffs I have loved the most

Or to grainy softness of white beaches

And, as green evening wafts the spray

Through slender coconut palms swaying away,

They just might glimpse at my feathery shadow

And fear that I eat humans raw.

Hey Jordan, nice imagery - I like the last line... I thought there was a great big cauldron!
