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.
A dose of inspiration!
I need this
This actually made me cry. Well done.
Thank you I know I have commented on everything I've read but thank you even if it gets boring to read from a bi-sexual like me thank you for writing this even if its not for me I thank you
This is absolutely beautiful, it has so much emotion in it. You touched on so many very important issues. My friend, I hope you continue to write because you have allot of talent. The things you touched on in here are so real and important. You will also give hope to any hopeless person who reads it. It did that for me. Here is the bottom like kiddo. You have allot of talent and state your feelings in an easy to understand way. Forget the trolls. They were wrong. Just remember, you will probably never know the positive impact your writings can have on people. I feel better because of this wonderful piece of writing you shared with us. God Bless, John
That was beautiful. Also something got in my eye.
Aww this was sweet :3 you are an amazing writer <3
You sir are amazing
Well, I'm a girl! But that's okay! I don't mind being called sir! Thanks!
Oh wow, this is amazing. Thank you for writing this!
That's exactly it!
This is the kind of art that needs to be on the front page of every book. It needs to be on posters all over schools.
I think so, I mean, at first it started towards a teen audience but then it grew wider. It would be amazing if it was on the front page!
This is beautiful.
This is so beautiful!
Beautiful. Everyone should read this...
Thank you, and I think they should also! I think it hits key points somewhere in everyone's live.
A rather cliché piece, but still true. I particularly like that you included both genders (most of these tend to focus on girls/women alone).
Cliche is the word for it, but I just wanted to get my point around, and like you said, to all genders.
This made me cry. It was beautiful.
Beautiful poem. It's very touching. Thank you <3
Wow, such an amazingly wonderful speech!!!
