Sometimes I don’t feel like painting the barn
Or making my hair do what it doesn’t want to hair-do
Sometimes I want to let the hair grow where it may
I want to let my blotches be
I want to let my stomach out
And my wrinkles wrinkle
I want to smile with my yellow teeth
And flash my naked nails
And allow whatever inner beauty I have to bubble up to the surface
I want to let my soul speak for itself
And let the shell rest, as is

Hi, Polly!! Maybe just my opinion… but I think all of us really should just let all of that happen, and simply BE… at least often enough that you allow ourselves and the world around us to see who we are in our most naturally beautiful state, unobstructed by preconceptions of what is considered “presentable”.
Well… at least it’s a nice dream, right? 😉
I hear you, Scott, and I agree. Wouldn’t that be something! I feel like this happens in our homes and maybe with our extended families and then in extreme situations like war where people are just trying to survive. I feel the burden of having to be pretty and I admit to not doing much with myself at home often, because I just want to be free of having to “transform”. Isn’t that what we all long for–to be loved and accepted as we are?! Thanks for always stopping in, my friend. Appreciate it. 🙂
Love it. Makes me think of every dental visit “Have you considered teeth whitening?” My response “Yes, but not today” 😀
Thanks, Maria. What would we all look like if we didn’t have all this help? Might level the playing field! Grace and peace, my friend. 🙂
This is a beautiful and refreshing reminder to embrace and celebrate natural beauty in ourselves. Thank you for sharing!
Aw, thanks, Elizabeth. It really is about the soul, isn’t it?! Blessings on you! 🙂
