I Knew You- By- Benson Oseghe

Benson Oseghe🔔
We describe him as art personified. A young man of few words with so much impacts. As a poet and a fine artists in duality, he has stood out beyond all odds as one of the gifted souls to look out for. Below is an indispensable piece written by Benson~ Titled: I Knew~~~~~~~

I knew you before makeup ever touched your face
Right before you started laying Foundation like a bricklayer
Before you kissed those lipsticks and groom those eyebrows
Before you let those contours and blushes define your beauty
I knew you before those eyelashes exaggerate the way you blink and those piercings affected the way you think
I knew you before you scrambled nature’s very design
Before you ever try to replace what was needed with what you wanted
I knew you before your face added shades
When you were young, pure and naive

I met you before snapchat added filters to your self-esteem
Before selfies put only you in the picture
Even in a group photo you only care about your smile
I met you before you ever updated your status with lies
I knew your ugly sides before your mood swing found comfort disguised in sent emojis

We’ve talked without dictions or borrowed accents
You’ve come visiting caring not about looks but decent
But now you seek advice from the mirror like a native doctor
I met you when the world gazed at the sound of your laughter but now you barely even smile at a conspicuous joke
You feel some breaking in your face when you laugh too deep
But beauty ain’t no prison
Now to your question about how you look
You look like you’ve been messing with PERFECTION lately.


Thanks Benson! This is a masterpiece indeed.  We look forward to tasting more of your salted words. Glow on dear!!
