I wish people could see themselves the way I see them.
I wish they knew the hunger to see not perfect faces,
But unique stories on features fresh in my vision.
Curves to cheeks I've never yet encountered,
Eye colours reflecting the myriad hues of simple reality.
I wish they could feel the joy I feel in seeing their smiles,
Or the way they gaze out a window on a train,
Or the gentle expression they give their fussing child.
A warmth grows in my soul at a rosy cheek,
Real and not covered with beauty cream.
A stubbled chin, a wild, hairy brow.
A dimpled knee, an exquisite mop of unruly hair.
And I know if I asked, many of them would suddenly be shamed
At all these things that lift my soul
But are always airbrushed away.
I wish they had the experience of what it is to record these faces,
Etching them deep within a part of the mind
I dip into when I create.
And encyclopaedia of features that I zealously treasure,
Like an OCD dragon on a hoard of gold, not just collecting
But understanding and analysing and knowing,
Glorying in every detail and thanking the Universe for its variety.
I wish they knew. I wish you knew.
I wish you felt what I feel, how glorious you all are.
I wish I could look at myself and be so generous.
