‘eye of the beholder’

no one says anything about the ugly, not unless there’s something beautiful after. what if there’s nothing that’s beautiful, what if we just keep having ugly after ugly; can we wash off and become beautiful. the proverbs say, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, but who is your beholder, who picks you up when they ugly is washed physically, but still hurting you internally!

when we’re so torn and beaten down with trying t help someone and they won’t take responsibility for themselves, when they can’t dig out of the pit they’re in; who is their beholder…Pride!

who picks you up when they ugly is washed physically, but still hurting you internally! let’s make that an, “I do”. when you speak to the one who created you and then you know who helped you wash the ugly.

I’m a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a writer, a friend. I cook, clean, work, teach, study, live, love and laugh, but when it’s all said and done, I still feel empty. I want what I can’t have, I’ve wanted it for a long time but it was taken. I thought to myself, the desire for it should go away now that I’ve prayed…I’ve cried, begged, pleaded and even pretended it wasn’t there; I cry out to God and beg Him to please just take this from me, do something to strip me of the earthly desires, of the evil in my heart and nothing happens…it’s still there and some days it’s hard to swallow and suck down the tears inside, it hurts so much and in one brief moment, it could all be gone so quickly! He gives me words to bless others with and release my own thoughts.
