Knowledge is like a garden, when not cultivated it cannot harvest


Hey, yes you staring in the mirror thinking that if you look closer
Looking from different angles thinking that what you see in the straight and slightly broken mirror isn't the same as what you'll see from all angles

When I look at you all I see is true beauty
Sure when you look at yourself you probably think how can a girl as big as me be beautiful, you aren't fat, you're a fully figured beautiful woman
To the white girls, yellow bones and dark skinned girls listening to criticism from all angles but if you can't appreciate yourself no one will, sweety people will always have something to say but smile and walk away
Why so suicidal?

You are beautiful and it's not easy to grasp but no matter how tall or skinny or short you are you have value

Why?
Pills…diets…cutting
Why put yourself through so much trouble to lose weight just so society can say you have anorexia?
Why cut yourself so deep just to forget your problems? You realize that your problem will be waiting when you put that razor down?
Why compare yourself to her when you don't know what she is going through

In other parts of the world a girl just committed suicide because of your perspective of how she looks
Sipping on diet cokes and eating slim bars just because you think she's too fat
Eating thousands of calories and food with extra fats just to gain weight to have those curves
Going to the GYM just because cosmopolitan tells her that the ideal woman looks a certain way

Ladies
If he doesn't appreciate you with all your flaws and your imperfection why are you still hanging on to him like a monkey dangling on trees
Ever heard of Jesus? He takes you as you are, He doesn't want you to be perfect…just come as you are
You are beautiful and words shouldn't get you down
You can photo shop your pictures but you can't photo shop your life, you can't adjust your body or elongate your legs just so you look perfect
Why can't you appreciate the way He created you?

You are beautiful and you are here for a greater purpose
If people bring you down dump them, easy as ABC



With Love
Nsuku
