Beauty is a system of blue eyes, white lies and skinny thighs.
It’s a cult who gathers new members.
Young girls to be exact.
Ready to drink the Kool-Aid;
if it gets them a date to prom.
Beauty is a monster who takes lives
and re-dyes perfectly fine hair.
Beauty is a size zero
who will never be my hero.
Yet wins anyway.
Beauty is big chests and failed tests
that leave scholarships behind.
It either becomes you or you become it.

What a powerful piece. Girls across the world should read this and be inspired that they are beautiful in every way.

Wow! Such good perspective. It reminds me that the popular opinion on what beauty is doesn't matter at all- beauty is all in the eyes of the beholder. I really thought about the part about how it either becomes you or you become it. I loved your motive for writing this piece. I agree with you 100%...beauty isn't about skinniness, trendiness, or anything of the sort!
