Beautiful

When will I be beautiful?

I barely wear make up

I dress nicely

But I don't feel beautiful

 

People say I am beautiful

But I just don't see it

When will I be happy?

 

People say looks don't matter

But it does matter

Especially to the owner

Of the body

 

How do you expect

People to be happy

With themselves

If you keep saying

Their looks don't matter

 

Being beautiful

Doesn't mean you have to be

Skinny

Have perfect teeth

Have perfect skin

Or perfect hair

 

Nobody is perfect

Nobody will be

 

Media needs to stop

Stop showing girls

You have to look

A certain way

Or they are ugly

 

Beauty is everywhere

Everyone is beautiful

No matter what size they are

Skin color they have

How their teeth are

Etc.

 

I am beautiful

And so are you!
