Amazing Beauty


August 15, 2011 by jrwatson5

Inspired by Cy Twombly’s painting, Triumph of Galatea

I went away, into a dark
tunnel and could not get out.
I was calling for help,
trying to find someone
who would guide me to
find my way out. I was
trying to go over to the bright
side and find someone
who would lead me
and love me for who I was
in real life. Someone to take me
out of this tunnel
and lead me up to the real world.
I would let them see the other side
of me, a side that they’ve never seen
before, the amazing beauty in me.

By Emely, 3rd grade
