Call it Beauty

When the world tells you

“Beauty is only skin deep”

Laugh,
and prove them wrong.

Show them the fierceness with which you love,

the passion with which you hand out every small kindness.

Smile at all of them,

show them that these lips’ sincerity will always outlive their marketability.

When the world tell you
“beauty is only skin deep”

tell them to close their eyes and listen;

Tell them about all the things you love,

speak warmly.

Confide all the places you find happiness,

reveal all of your passions,

make them laugh,

admit that you get sad sometimes.

Paint them a picture of everything your skin could never tell them.

Ask them to describe it;

“Beautiful”.

When the world tells you

“Beauty is only skin deep”

show them that beauty is something your soul has been soaked in,

that it drips form your words,

shimmers in the air after every movement.

Help them realize;

beauty cannot be defined,

only experienced.

It cannot be captured through a camera lens,

only lived.

When the world tells you

“Beauty is only skin deep”

ask them,

When have they felt the most beautiful?
