You are not by any means the prettiest man I ever saw,

Nor are you kind faced.

No flattering words fall from your lips,

no gentle hands have you.

No perfection can I see.

 

 

 

But what am I?  

 Monster?  victim? ....

 

 

 

Who said you did not have

gentle hands, was that me?

Did I not look deep enough? 

 did I miss you smile 

whilst I mocked your scars?

 

 

Where my ears deaf to your kindness?

what am I?

 

 

Perhaps I did not share your smile  

whilst my cruel barbs maimed you,

 

I found flaw in HIS work

and laughed in your face.

No gentle hand of friendship

Did I offer, as you held your hand out to mine.

 

 Ugly laughter stained my soul

 cruel hand gave pause...

 twisted mouth shot bullets

blind eyes could not see 

what my black heart had wrought

in my mind as

 ridicule rode my tongue.  

 

 Ugliness

wrought your pain

 

 

 

I am ugly, I am not kind,

no soft word fell from my lips.

No gentle did help you up.

 

God forgive my ignorance.
