CHARLENE MARY-CATH SMITH

BEAUTY IS THE BEAST

They’ve wrongly paired you Beast
with Beauty’s opposing entity

Do they call you Beast
for your fierce fascade
that wears a sinister mask?
for the fire in your eye
that glows a gentle ember?
passion in your soul
fanned by tenderness’ bellows?
brute of hand gloved in shammy?

Why aren’t they able to see
what you can’t conceal reveal
itself in all the nuance that
you are that you don’t need

Beauty

to learn its essence?

the essence you already are
