Beauty is everywhere
It is shown in our eyes
It is discovered in love
It is a sun setting over a calm ocean
It is when we share or give to those less fortunate then ourselves
It is the feeling we get when we look in the mirror
It is expressed in a smile
It is spending time with the ones you love
It is hanging out with your best buds
It is a single red rose in a clear vase
It is a man’s best friend trying to get you to play with them
It is a candle burning in a place with complete darkness
It is a mother (human or not) taking care of their child
Beauty is not only expressed in magazines
It’s in our actions
Our hearts
Our minds
It is feeling that you belong in this world
The feeling when you put on your favorite t-shirt
It is in our dreams
In the songs that represent our lives
In the books we read (the vivid realism)
It is favored in the movies we watch
In the surprises life brings
Beauty is just being you
It is not giving into peer pressure but to face it head on
It is standing out in a sea of people
It is making a commitment to staying true
It is not judging people by the way they look but by what’s in their hearts
It is enjoying life, having fun, and being free
Beauty is too magical to describe
So go out of the box and be who you want to be
(No matter what)
