Real Beauty – Written January 2001 (Aged 25)

Real Beauty

i am attracted to real beauty
it always feels more real
to some,
a face may be ordinary
but for me it has beauty
its natural character –
must always shine through
i am attracted to the strange
or at least, they find me
i find her attractive
she has a natural beauty
which means it is far from ordinary
because real people are always better

James Garratt – January 2001
