"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

She was beautiful
but she didn’t see.
She had poise,
but she didn’t know.
She was clever,
but she didn’t recognize.
She had grace,
but she never knew.

She won’t have it ever again.
and she will never know.

The author's comments:
It seems like people don't view themselves in a positive light, when really there are a lot about them that is awesome! This wasn't inspired by a particular person, but rather our society and media in general.
