My Beautiful

My hair is not always in place,
My nails are not always painted neatly.
My face is not always clear,
Makeup does not always cover my face.
My clothes are not always ironed right,
And the colors I wear don’t always match.
I don’t have a sweet laugh,
But rather an obnoxious one.
My teeth are not perfect,
And my smile is not always straight.
My voice is not always soft,
My words are not always graceful.
My eating can be messy,
And if the drink is good then there could be a slurp at the end.
I don’t always have good days,
I can be mean when I’m mad.
But even though,
My character is strong,
My soul is sensitive.
My hand is always held out to help,
My arms are always welcoming to new and old friends.
I can strike up a conversation with a total stranger,
I can strike up a conversation with an animal.
I am genuine,
I am straightforward,
I am honest,
I am caring.
And that, that is my beautiful.

Remind Me

Remind me
Remind me of who I use to be.

Remind me of the smile that never left my face
And the laughter that filled my air.

Remind me of my goals
And of my dreams
Remind me of who I use to be.

Remind me of my faith
And remind me of my hopes.

Remind me how negative energy
Was never a part of my world.

Remind me of my determination
And of my hard work.

Remind me of the love I had
for my life, and for my world.

Remind me of my simple ways,
Remind me of my simple roads.

Remind me of who I use to be,
Before I became so cold.
