***

Mommy always said:

“Pain is beauty.”

So I took it to heart.

Everytime I plucked and scrubbed

Myself to perfection.

*

I craved attention

Wanted boys to look twice

And holler for my number.

But I never got a cat call,

Or a sign of interest.

*

So, God as my witness,

I changed myself.

Went under the knife

To get affection

Or the slightest smile.

*

Mother looked at me with bile.

“You’re different, you’re changed.”

“It hurts, like you said.”

“This isn’t what I meant.”

She never looked at me the same again.

*

Is it over then?

My chance of happiness?

Always wanted a man beside me,

Happy to have me,

Cherishing his beautiful woman.

*

‘Maybe I’m just human’

I tell myself,

Holding a different knife.

This one will change me for good,

And only God will know my real face.

*

It’s all just a race

Too see who will finish first.

Except for a trophy,

It’s unhappiness

And death.
