When you came from the Creator’s hand
You were perfect in all you needed to be
Just as the apple seed holds the entire tree
Yes, you were perfect in all your beauty
But then as you began to blossom and bloom
That is when I found my opportunity to find myself some room
Where you already were whole I chiseled in doubt and gloom
Is that really what your eyes should look like?
Is your visage something to behold, making the poet write?
Your form to grace the covers of magazines, a pleasing sight?
Are your lips pleasing to the eye
Not knowing that your eyes were already made to envision eternity
That beyond any tint, shadow, or tweeze
The richness is in each look cast compassionately
Despite the layers, that the visage of the Creator is shown beyond
That your foundation goes past blushes and tinting blonde
The work of your hands sheds colours of life to the servants of bonds
No need for paints for you are the brightness to which we are drawn
Why seek the grace of magazine covers
When you are the subject covered in His grace
I will tell you exactly why?
It is because of I.
Because I needed to find a way to get in
And if you knew how much you were worth, my chance would be none to slim
So I said, are you sure you are enough?
So I said here is the additions and trinkets
Let your outside shine with whatnots, whatsits and blingetts
And as the years past did you realise that all those layers
And the disappearance of all these players
That after all the brushes, cuts, incisions, and bitter remarks nurtured
I was the one who sold you the make up
To put a shake up
On what was already made up
To be shaped up
As the image of the Creator
So that I of base character could say
She is mine, for no one else will have her anyway
When in reality you are treasured beyond, fashion, paints, polishes, and shades
I sold you the make up so I could put a price on beauty, whos price is passed what words can say.
*i don’t mean to sound as if I am saying every person should go all natural or like grooming is not needed. But I Will say we have undervalued just how wonderfully God has made each one of us when we must sell these additions to make us more……. more what? And for who?*
