CONGRATS CYNTHIA!!!!


3rd Person Soliloquy by Char P.


jaded voices all around her


Disbelieving her


Doubting her intent


Questioning her motives and what she believes


What does she stand for?


Why is she here?


The crowd looks to her….until she speaks.


she wants to be known for something greater than herself


she wants to be recognized as not just a beauty


she strives for perfection


not to prove anything


but to push herself further


she wants to glow from within so people will see the light of the love she gives


she wants to to give talent to others that are too scared to show theirs


she wants to be strong


not to be bragadocious but to show weak souls dark days will end


she wants to show compassion


where others are too ignorant


she wants to show beauty


the beauty of intelligence and fearlessness


she wants to smile through her tears


so her adversaries will know they failed.


she wants to give time


as respect for others who have none left


she wants to give charity to show others riches are more powerful than dollars


she wants to give hope


to the children who pray for it nightly


she wants to give breath


to the breathless ones fighting each moment


she wants to give water


to the parched that are never heard


she wants to give chances


to the looked over, berated and beaten down


she wants to give a hand


to those incapicatated by life and grief


she wants to be the voice


for those who have been silenced by hate


she wants to be the eyes


for the blind that wish for sight


she wants to be the tears


so sadness can leave those who have never felt joy


she wants to be the Queen


that people choose to love
