Napowrimo: Poem #4

DAY 4!
So I'm not the least bit interested in paint but I do love make up so to MAC Cosmetics website I went because they give their eyeshadow some pretty interesting names so I knew what was in store. I selected an eyeshadow called "Beauty Marked" and I knew right away what I wanted to write about so...ENJOY!

(this is the color, just in case you're wondering)

“What are those dots on your face?”

I would say with a child’s innocence

Now looking in the mirror

All I can do is reminisce

Because now those small dots

Have taken their place on my face

A small mole

Tells a story never told

Speaks volume of a family of women

Striking and bold

I love that my grandmother and I

Both have one of the sides of our nose

Who knew that with a beauty mark

Confidence would spark

So when I bear my first child

I won’t look for 10 fingers or tens toe

I’ll look my baby up and down

To see if she has one of these moles


  1. Nice work, princess! I love the idea of them being handed down from generation to generation.
    Nice work!

  2. I love how you convey the strength of your grandmother and yourself through the mole story!

  3. as someone with a couple of moles, i could relate to this lovely story of family.

  4. is that like a family heirloom??...who knew that could be so empowering....

  5. very moles are on my back..I if I cant see them...not an issue...but i will rember "beauty marked"..keep up the writing
