Set Beauty Free

beautiful,
but insecure
she hides her face
and covers skin
shy and silent
no one knows
the beauty that
she holds within

she wishes for
a prince to come
– or a princess,
she will see –
someone
to dig hard and deep
and set her beauty
free

she’ll love that person
to the moon
and much further,
until the end
she’ll be what
that person needs
a lover, shoulder
anchor, friend

and when they’re old
she will make sure
she is the last
to go and die
for she cannot bear
to see her lover,
shoulder, anchor
and friend cry
