This re-blog was beautifully, gloriously written by Jackie Paulson at I thought it was a perfect thing to read on this beautiful Sunday. Be sure to click on the hyperlink: It is a poem, and the only way to get the complete poem with ALL the words is to click there. Don’t just read what ended up on my page, ok?

I am a woman of no distinction

of little importance

I am a women of no reputation

save that which is bad


You whisper as I pass by and cast judgmental glances

Though you don’t really take the time to look at me

Or even get to know me


For to be known is to be loved

And to be loved is to be known

Otherwise what’s the point in doing

either one of them in the first place




I want someone to look at my face

And not just see two eyes, a nose,

a mouth and two ears

But to see all that I am, and could be

all my hopes, loves and fears


But that’s too much to hope for, to wish for,

or pray for

So I don’t, not anymore


Now I keep to myself
