Like the rugged cloth ripped across the edges..
Dainty, falling apart thread by thread,
Snugged amidst the thorny hedges...
Was a soul burning in red!
Scorched in the heat of comparison!
Ridiculed by the sterotype!
Judgemental eyes holding life in garrison
Questioning her sentimental stripe!
Worthless, what they called her!
Flawed and imperfect..
Words couldn't break her...
As she owned her flaws and defects!!
