Body Breathes with Knowledge

my face lies bare of foundation, exposing my imperfect skin tones

my eyebrows reflect of asymmetry, craving for a proper wax

my lips require a fuchsia lipstick, whispering gossip of insecurity

my blemishes and wrinkles yearn for a concealer, exemplifying a teen’s worry of age


my heart knows the foundations of the political system by heart, ranging from the Framers to freedom of speech

my brain reflects of the even symmetry of a quadratic function, admiring its positivity and negativity

my loose leaf pages of my poetry stick out, wanting to be understood

my body conceals what I am hiding behind a filter, seeking for the essential of life
