Who decided what BEAUTY meant?

What beauty really means

Who decided what beauty meant?

Who said that big boobs and blonde hair is heaven sent?

Who decided that unrealistic Barbie-like models always get the front page?

Who said that looks matter the most in this day and age?

Who felt it was ok to let young girls to feel so insecure?

To think they’re not enough being innocent and pure?

No, instead girls see these photo-shopped idols and think “I will never be pretty enough, so the only way a boy will like me is if I become slutty enough.”

They throw away their inhibitions hoping to be accepted

Wishing they could be themselves but fearing being rejected

And it pains me to say, but in this modern day, it is men have placed this expectation on women to be unrealistically pretty.

I find it’s my duty to rewrite the script and explain what beauty really means, because it is so much more than what we can see.

Beauty can’t be seen by the eye, it can only be felt by the heart. Beauty thus is not a fixed idea, but rather a work of art.

You have to know that you are more than just your reflection

You might not have it all, but in someone’s eyes you are perfection

Don’t hide behind the make-up or jewellery, your beauty lays beneath

Like your crooked smile that shows just enough teeth

Your nerdy glasses that magnify the depth of your eyes, puts my stomach in ties because when you look at me, you look IN me and feel my pain. Your soft nature lets me feel comfortable again.

Your fair, silky and blotched skin

Caresses my insecurities and makes me whole within

Your curvy body waddles as you walk

Your goofy giggle makes me smile when you talk

Your beauty is not in your looks, but in your presence. It’s in the way you make me feel when I’m around you. Your beauty is how you allow me to feel beautiful. It’s in how you allow me to be myself through your kindness, through your love and authenticity.

Can’t you see, your beautiful in 100’s of ways

Don’t let yourself be defined by what others say

Ignore those who perve, it’s not what you deserve

Rather, you deserve to find someone who wants 2:

Kiss your kindness

Make love with your mindfulness

Sleep with your smile

And date your style

A guy who wants to caress your courage

Flirt with your funniness

Pick up your personality

And hook up with your hospitality

Someone who wants to have a 1 night stand with you and your friends

Who wants to talk in bed till the night ends

A guy who booty calls for your beliefs

And sexts for your success

Beauty, like love, is blind. Your beauty is not in your looks, but in your presence. It’s in the way you make me feel when I’m around you. Your beauty is how you allow me to feel beautiful. It’s in how you allow me to be myself through your kindness, through your love and authenticity.

You are beautiful and you are enough.

Because your beauty comes from your heart

You, dear, you are a work of art

Much love,

Laurens
