Uglier Up Close

woman-2609115_960_720
Everything’s uglier up close
And I don’t mean pimples
Acne
Or scars
Ugly, if it were a person, an accountable being
Separate from your current state
Ugly, if it could speak
What would it say?
Why did it come here?
Why did it stay?
Everyone is born beautiful
But only a few die that way
Ugly is not you, but it is your mind
If you let it
Ugly is only what you allow yourself to become
Some allow the whims of empty souls
To take the place of self reliance
Some allow the mire of prodding pathetics
To make their space in defiance
Everything’s uglier up close
Everybody except the ones that don’t bend
Except the ones that can stand in the storm
And withstand the heavy rains
Like you
