To this day

"My experience with violence in schools still echo
throughout my life but standing to face the problem has
helped me in immeasurable ways."
Shane Koyczan


to this day
despite a loving husband
she doesn’t think she’s beautiful
because of a birthmark
that takes up a little less than half of her face
kids used to say she looks like a wrong answer
that someone tried to erase
but couldn’t quite get the job done
and they’ll never understand
that she’s raising two kids
whose definition of beauty
begins with the word mom
because they see her heart
before they see her skin
that she’s only ever always been amazing

Read the whole poem here!

  1. Nu har jag läst hela storyn, som är väldigt väl skriven och totalt "matter of fact like".
    Hade nog tittat på filmen också om jag fick upp Flash playern, vilket jag uppenbarligen sabbade igår. Suck.
    Bra inlägg Eva, väldigt bra!

  2. Bra och mycket tänkvärt.
