poetry critical

our nature tends to make us unnatural

when you start to look ugly
which can never happen really
but will
in your eyes
uglier than you thought you were
because you were better once
maybe you get shocked or pissed
or mad or glum and forget
it is natural to get ugly but not
natural to believe it
