A Swan in a World of Peacocks

Yes, that’s right.  You,

You who thought you were an ugly duckling

In a world full of swans,

You were mistaken!

Peacocks!

So many peacocks—

They shake their tail feathers and

Fluff their fuzzies and

Bat their eyelashes and

Strut their stuff in the streets,

Halls,

Social networks…

Everywhere.

But you, the swan

Glide effortlessly, pure and

Exquisite,

No fancy colors needed, no extra work.

You are beautiful without even trying,

And nothing could upset those Peacocks more.

La Cygne

Sincerely,

Torrence Nightingale
