buhle











{November 9, 2009}   Poem #25-Blank verse

You sure is ugly, Miss  Celie!!!

At first glance, I’m judgemantal

Beneath the surface

Is a trapped, troubled woman

Who never knew self

End the differentiation of want and need

 

Beauty is only skin deep, so is the heart of stone

Afraid if a crack is noticed the cut is deepened

I resent your willingness to answer to master,

Even if his actions are unethical

 

To let another woman tag you

Then, What defines beauty as ugliness?

Is it your physical appearance or deeds

You delayed to answer to your husbands call

As I observe your willingness to sacrifice

You suffer a heart thorne without creation
