face hidden, constraint-painted
charisma-thrifted, tainted
with falsities, proper-ties, power unknown,
sparkle wasted, gifts unshown
cultural niceties soul-drowning
unabashed pure-self gaining ground
unravelling, zing-bursting, vital, found
inner portrait breaking through
dazzling, free, alive, YOU

happiness, transformation, found, authentic, pure, true, happy,

  1. “falsities, proper-ties, power unknown” great word combination/comparison. I appreciate your pointing out the ties to being proper, or whatever else, and the resulting concealed power, sparkle, gifts, etc.

    I like the feeling of the movement from constriction to expression as I read your poem. Thanks.
