She's a Beuty

She's a Beuty

A Poem by MadalaJose
"

This poem was inspired by my friends at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp who in spite of what they have been through, they still live their lives

"
Cracked feet, caroused hands 
Blacked skin from the scorching sun
Her skin is the colour of sin 
Her lips cracked for the lack of of Vaseline 
Her dreams the smell of the perfume of an undertaker
War, refugee 

But
She's a beauty in her brokeness
A saint in her misery 
She's broke on the outside 
But she's hope springing on the inside 

My ear can hear 
Her thumping heart 
Throbbing for existence 
She's not just alive 
She's is living
