She was told what beauty was

You have to be thin
You have to be blonde
You have to have straight hair
You have to be anything you’re not

She has no one to convince her otherwise
And if she does
She’s not listening

She cuts herself to feel something
She starve herself to get skinny
She hates herself because she can’t see herself

Because she’s not the image of what she was told she should be

She does not see she is beautiful
The way she is
The way she talks
The way she walks
The way she is herself

She does not see her self
As beauty
But she is

She is a queen by her own right
She is a lover with the ability to nurture
She has birth nations of kings and queens
She has the strength of a warrior

She does not
Need to be told what she is

She is light
She is love
She is strength
She is beauty

No matter
Your size
Your shape
Your color
Your hair

You are beauty
