every heart
a heart to break,
every mind
a mind to make,
change.
change.
change.
the nurses ambition,
to convert,
and cover
until beyond recognition
the fear of a million
in the woman’s step,
the uncertainty of so many
in her look
nurses hand guides the knife
sure as an artist with a brush,
and now
finished with the procedure,
when she steps out
i stare in fright
who is this woman who went in
will she ever come out?
my mother has a new plastic face,
lifted eyes,
and tummy tucked,
i look at myself,
when i am grown
will i be pretty?
will a nurse shape my body?
will my lips be bigger?
my face be rounder?
my skin be perfect?
will i be pretty?
and then
what?
only regret

Really touching poem.
I enjoyed it.
It's a really good first post.

Sadness, like happiness, has its own majestic beauty and must be embraced as a valid emotion, not pushed down as an abnormality.
