Born to be rough and
shabby, beauty is not
in my bone. Unlike the

broken-hearted homely
toad on a starry night,
no tears and sorrow

but accept, forgo
My nature of loving
lonely soul as the

boulder-like makes me
feel as beautiful inside
as any beauties, and

I thrive on my
wisdom of adapting
any harsh milieu
