Upon first glance,
I see a Hollywood smile,
an air of intrigue greets passers by.
But, when I look into her eyes,
I see something much different
than her pursed lips convey.
distrust, trauma, fear...
all pushed down, covered
with happy highlights
for the world to see.
Perhaps, it’s simply a reflection
of my insecurities,

She doesn’t sing to win awards,
she sings to breathe life to her soul,
connect with spirits tuning in,
let them know they are not forgotten.
She knows she will have critics
that judge her art lacking.
Their negativity is nothing she hasn’t
overcome from herself a million times
on her rocky road to freedom.
She smiles as the ivory tickles her left palm,

My confidence might be a house of cards,
And topple over with no safeguards.
My confidence might be a pane of glass,
And be seen through and easily smash.
My confidence might be a rare mink vase,
Worth much but breaks to a thousand shards.
My confidence might be a beautiful flower,
And crushed with just a little power.
But my confidence might be a bar of gold.
Strong and valuab...

My face may not have symmetry
My skin may have spots
My belly may roll and wobble
My thighs may touch... a lot
Petals do not have symmetry
Mountains may have spots
The ocean may roll and wobble
The clouds they touch... a lot
I see the beauty of nature
Everytime I look at me
I was handcrafted by goddesses
As is everything I see

Over and over,
I see your name
like a tattoo
on my brain.
not on deed or fame,
but simply a name.
A tag, reminding us
who we are:
who despite living
an alternate reality,
believes in passion,
love, happily ever after...

I can’t believe I found you at last. I haven’t seen you since I was 17.
A few times I felt you near, but couldn’t see you because I was blinded by my attachment to shining knight fairy tales, white picket fences, and the American dream.
What a relief to know you never really left. You have been here all along, patiently waiting for me...
to smile at my reflection in the mirror.

Living in my own world
Not giving a damn about anything but me
Call me a self centered freak
But thinking 'bout myself is a good change
When everything revolves around you
Nothing ever done my way
You're on cloud nine with a tiara on your head
I'm on the ground with mascara trails down my cheeks
In this big world with turns and curves
I saw all the ups and downs but more...

If you learn from the past
Improving your future
Then you'll achieve the goal
And reach it safely faster
Pay an attention to move
Know the direction to go
Have time to Improve
Act well, not only "show"
Earn your people' regard
And don't cross the fence
Know the value of the word
Now you've got confidence

FOOT BY FOOT
I hold your hands
For you to take a step
For you to tread ahead
For you to stand straight
For you to hold your head high.
Step by Step
We walked together
For you to gather strength
For you to gain confidence
For you to fathom a future bright
For you to stand to apart upright
Higher the Flight
You rose to heights
For you to shine
For you to ...

Pale faced and nondescript
until you don the warpaint,
Dances with Wolves.
Wary of the white man
speaking with forked tongue.
you lead the war party
to the Big Horn.
Young Guns –
on the warpath.
the tribal colours.
