We’ve all been there before…
struggling with our self images,
not liking or loving the person
staring back at us in the mirror,
wishing we could change
just a pimple or a lot of our exterior.
Our thoughts can ruin our self esteems,
painting a picture of what beauty is.
It is not just the models on our tv screens
or the people in the magazines
that makes us all self-conscious of who we are.
They are just the icing on the cake
of our self destruction.
It is our thoughts
that are destroying our self worth.
Too often, we look
to make-up, plastic surgery, and everything
we can find comfort in
to make us feel better about ourselves.
Beauty RADIATES from within.
We can cover up as much
of our natural beauty as we want,
hiding in the dark,
afraid to step into the light like vampires
but the truth is:
We don’t need anyone to tell us
that we are beautiful
because we are
beautiful -inside and out-
no matter who we are
or the colors of our skin.
