You Are Beautiful
To the girl who cuts herself to bleed away the pain,
To the girl who starves herself because she isn’t “skinny enough”.
To the boy who takes drugs to “fit in” with the jock,
To the boy who is bullied for reading his books, rather than play boy magazines,
To the girl who believes she must strip down to nothing to get the love and compassion she yearns for.
To the man who feels like a failure for the lack of money he holds,
To the women who feels out of style for not having the newest trends,
To the teens sniffing drugs because it makes them a part of the “in crowd”,
To the teens who sits alone, because they have no crowd.
To the boy holding the pills in his hand to end his life,
To the girl with the fabric belt around her neck, feeling like she is worthless,
To the man who looks at his life in shame,
To the woman who looks at her life in despair,
To the one who is persecuted for their beliefs,
To the one who is persecuted for their non beliefs,
To the one who is gay, straight, lesbian, bi-sexual or trans,
To the girl who stares at her reflection in the mirror, hating every bit of it,
To the boy who sits alone and cries every night,
You are Beautiful.
Young or Old,
Clean or Unclean,
Beauty exists in everything.
I see beauty in you.
And so should you.
Life is too short, to focus on imperfection.
Be proud of yourself for who you are,
Not for who you are not.
Focus on the things that only harm you,
And you will lose sight of the beauty that you once cherished so much.
