Sorrow haunts all those who have it,
Pain surrounds those who have lost it,
Solitude hangs on those who wish for it,
All who want it do anything ot get it,
And those who have it will do anything to lose it.
What is it you ask?
In this world,
Beauty is everything.
Is popularity.
Is your future.
As long as you have Beauty,
You are somebody.
So my request to you is simple.
Burn the Beauty.
Forget about it.
Beauty is nothing.
Beauty is pain,
Beauty is sorrow,
Is the heaviest burden to bear.
Forget the Beauty.
Leave it behind.
Just be you.
No matter what people think,
Or do,
Just be you and.....
Burn the Beauty.

How many times have you looked in the mirror and it ruined your day because of how many things you saw that the world considered "ugly"? A lot. I know belive me. So this is a challenge. One day in your lives just leave all your makeup and junk at home. Don't look for blemishes. If you paint a pot too fancily it loses the imagination that the sculpter put into it. You can no longer see his fingerprints embedded in the clay. It's the same with each and every one of us. Just look at yourself that day and remeber you are covered with the fingerprints of God.
