“You are the most beautiful woman, I’ve ever met”,
he used to say.
I would look at the mirror,
smile and run away.
Once met with an accident,
my face got charred.
And he said,
“You are the ugliest woman I’ve ever beheld.”
Looking at the mirror,
tears rolled down my cheeks.
I wondered if I have really turned into a beast.
“What matters is your inner beauty, my child and
You are the most beautiful person I’ve ever known,”
my mother said.
I looked at the mirror,
And saw the brightest future ahead.
