Look Beyond

Have you seen behind!

Her eyes,

There is an ocean of salt,

Resting as tears,

Have you seen behind!

Her nostrils,

There you will find air,

Of toxic she inhales easy,

Have you seen behind!

Her lips,

There sits in silence myriad,

Unspoken words of despair,

Have you seen behind!

Her face,

There are hidden many layers of,

Emotions covered in disguise,

Have you seen behind!

Her neckline,

You will see how many times,

She has been choked,

Have you seen behind!

Her two shoulders,

You will see the load she carries,

But never complaint,

Have you seen behind!

Her bosoms,

You will find a bleeding heart,

That still pumps and seeks love,

Have you seen behind!

Her navel,

You will see the light residing,

Of life she has brought on earth,

Have you seen behind!

Her chastity,

You will see the pain of her,

Wounds inside closed like bud,

Have you seen behind!

Her thighs,

You will see she is more than flesh,

With marks of wounds from past,

Have you seen behind!

Her pair of knees,

You will find ache and cracks,

Still she stands firm on them,

Have you seen beneath!

Her bare feet,

You will see blood oozing red,

Pricked from the thorns of life,

Have you ever seen her soul naked?

Apart from her naked body,

Have you really seen her beyond?

Her body of flesh and curves,

She is more than that, she is human…
