beauty was a word that i yearned to have

and savor in my mouth like sweet honey candy

just waiting to be used with my name

i cut my hair

changed by clothes

and quit eating

for beauty

and yet beauty was never a word i saw

when i looked in the mirror

or went to the pool

~ i gave everything to be beautiful but i never was
