Yesterday, a sage, long dead, said

Spots to beauty, no matter how minor

Lies inherent in all of us

Such to make us feel his favor

 

So when you feel bluey

For your nose highlights not your eyes

Don’t forget your lips quirk smiley

To elicit response in mine

 

One to feed and one to carry

Lungs and nose, he said, are pairs

Cut to size it is to tarry

Changes to one hurt the fair

 

So when you feel gloomy

For that forehead angels awkwardly

Recall your eyes shines glowy

And sets the heart of the opposite racy

 

Want to cut something off?

Let it be bloated ego

Ant not them other stuff

That makes you inherently you

 

Remember then that blueprint

Carrying a code that’s just yours

Surely come again to imprint

Adam’s image upon your progeny

 

Be you blind or deaf to hear

Know what wonder it is to be

Even if walking is much to bear

Know what favor it is to be

 

Lost in self worth’s rage?

Know what beauty lies in you

Be you fat to fit that dress

Know what grace lies in you

 

For he sees beauty of him in you

And would accept you no matter

And there, in his presence

Will you find your worth
