Our False Perceptions

of Beauty

By Megan Wheeler

To change the alphabet would be divine.

The meaning behind the letters

Would change the meaning behind the words

Change the meaning behind the cruel sentences

Change what fuels my nightmares.

These changed meanings would change

The mouths that have been sewed to a person’s face.

It would change how we, as misguided humans, see ourselves.

Change how others see us

How our seemingly unimportant reflections see us.

Our world that we have been forced into would change

The meaning of letters

Words

Sentences

Paragraphs

Pages

And more importantly,

The chapters that make up our lives.
