Distraught

untitled (6)

Everyone wants to be beautiful —
But what if we’re not?
What if we’re helpless as babes
To darkness’s onslaught?

What if we look around and realize
That all we feel is wrong;
That others feel something else;
That our chance is gone?

I said “helpless as babes,”
But babes we are not.
For they are innocent:
We’re just distraught.
