Be Beautiful – Written 2008 (Aged 33)

Be Beautiful

be beautiful
especially when ugly –
and dispassionate
leave their calling cards –
on the doormat
the doormat that we all become
okay, perhaps only for a while
there is a recession on our hope
and a loss on our smiles
so be beautiful
if only for a while

James Garratt – 2008
