Dinner today is at the L’acroius Hotel
My attire for the night right in front of me.
A short white dress with black polka dots
A perfect reflection of my life,
My perfect but not so perfect life.
A life built in the rough,
Like a gold and the refiner’s fire.
A necessary but painful process.
I’ve been made the hard way,
I’ve had to learn the hard way,
I’ve sure come a long way.
It’s been worth all the pain,
the fears and the tears.
I’ve learnt to appreciate me,
Even when the world doesn’t.
I’ve learnt to celebrate me,
Even when the world is unconcerned.
I’ve learnt to embrace me,
When the world treats me like trash.
I’ve learnt to wear my heels with pride,
Hold my head high and my chest out
I know I’m full of blemish, stain and regrets,
I’m still beautiful and proud.
I’m a product of my past .
A determinant of my future.
