celosia in bloom

Yona by Mayumi Matsumoto; click for source.

she was
a little klutz who always trembled before long,
yet she found the courage to face her fears;
someone who struggled incessantly to be strong,
despite being on the verge of tears.

her face
is now smeared with dirt,
and her hands
are now scarred with cuts.

the frail girl who was once so spoiled
now finds simple joys in a life of toil.

she had become so unsightly.
but she has grown so beautiful.
