Plain Jane – The Mag 241

Self-portrait, Vivian Maier

Feeling Plain Jane, odd one out.
Preoccupied with finding beauty,
hiding, waiting to be discovered.
My solitary life can make me blue.
Sometimes with the lighting just so,
fancy myself the Cinderella of 5th Avenue.
Rushing to find the perfect scene
before my glass slipper falls off,
reminding me who I really am.

  1. This is so good, because it can apply to Vivian Maier and her situation and to all of us. By the way, when you linked up to Magpie Tales the link leads back to Magpie rather than here. Maybe why you don't have more comments.
