Be inspired and create a piece of writing for her.
Imperfect! Rough! Uncompleted!
Hair contorting in the breeze!
Limbs twisting like gnarled branches!
Ugly trunk with no knees!
Hideous face, marred like bark!
Bulbous breasts disfigured!
Not fit for vulture (let alone lark)!
No! beaver won't even gnaw you!
Fire skirts your very presence!
Repulsed by your rigidity!
Soil only holds you aloft
to rid itself of your putridity!
Lumberjack, taken aback
by the sight of your unwholesomeness!
Refuses with his axe to hack
at your twisted wooden mess!
But I endeavor to love you still!
Until infinity, my love will endure.
How can I spurn gift from her,
Whom we know as Mother Nature?
For with every woman reaching
for a heart which they can keep,
the gist of what the sages are teaching
is that beauty is just skin deep!
So look past the gruesome mask,
and find that which lies within!
For happiness is accepting
no matter the wrapping, my friend!
