Treasure Island

Agnes Atinyao Quirante

(July 21,1991 / La Trinidad)

I AM BEAUTIFUL


Why should I hide my face?
Thine sweet and fair skin I have.
Why should should I be not proud of my eyes?
Thine clear and vivid of the windows of my soul.
Why should I not praise my ownself?
When I’m beautiful in and out.

I am beautiful.
I am beautiful as I believe
And I am beautiful for I am beautiful
I am beautiful for who I am and I am not.
I am beautiful like everybody else
I see myself a beauty that will nay unfade
I am beautiful for my words.
I am beautiful for my thoughts
And I’m beautiful.
And I’m beautiful.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
