They Told You

They told you that you are ugly- that beauty was forgotten when you were made.
But... if this was true, tell me then why roses and angels and stars and precious jewels envy you wishing to have at least the beauty of your feet-wishing they could feed of the crumbs of the sparkle of you eyes?
They told you that you had no meaning.
But... if this was true, the dictionary would lose thousands of words- because words like support, beauty, woman, sister and mother would have no purpose.
They told you that you had no purpose.
but... if this was true, life would die and death would live- hugs and kisses would go numb and loneliness would be the only companion a man could have- drowning every man in his own tears.
They told you that you are weak and worthless.
But... if this was true, then why did God choose you to carry the gift of life?
Why did He choose you to be the other half that keeps a man going?
Why did He choose you to be the one to love, tolerate and comprehend at all time without asking anything in return?
Why did He choose you to keep peace, love and faith as the world's daily bread?
They told you that you were just a burden, another heavy load.
But... the truth is that you make the heavy load of growing up and living much easier to carry.
